Drs. Daewook Kang and Rosa Krajmalnik-Brown along with Dr. James Adams, have been featured in the Autism Live Youtube Webshow. They talked about the exciting news of the recent publish paper about Microbiota Transfer Therapy in a cohort with children with autism.
The key to fighting autism might lie not in the mind, but in the gut. A recent publication in the journal Microbiome by the members Krajmalnik-Brown Lab and collaborators, approaches the search for effective autism treatments by focusing on improving the gut microbiome through fecal microbial transplants.Early results are promising, but additional testing is required before an FDA-approved therapy would be available or recommended to the public.
This is exciting news to the authors of the paper Dae-Wook Kang, Juan Maldonado and Rosa Krajmalnik-Brown at the Krajmalnik-Brown Lab. Also, the research includes collaborators from ASU’s Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering, Northern Arizona University, University of Arizona, Ohio State University and the University of Minnesota.

Program Manager Matt Scholz, Principle Investigator Jim Elser, and SCEB Director Bruce Rittmann define the Sustainable Phosphorus Alliance (S.P.A.) and the problems it seeks to solve in an article published by Ally Carr of the Biodesign Institute. Housed within the Swette Center for Environmental Biotechnology at Arizona State University, SPA envisions and promotes intensive phosphorus recycling and recovering resources from wastewater and other sources in completely new ways.
"Resources in the wrong places are pollution, but resources in the right place truly are resources," Dr. Rittmann describes.
