Abstract or project description

Rheumatoid arthritis is a widespread disease that affects millions of people worldwide. Recent research has pinpointed diet and its impact on the gut microbiome as being a major player in the development of the disease. This project will focus on creating a review article that summarizes the field, what researchers are focused on, and what potential therapeutics will be used to treat the disease.
