Brett Loman

Assistant Professor, Animal Sciences

Assistant Professor, Nutritional Sciences

Loman’s interdisciplinary research improves animal and human gastrointestinal and mental health. By understanding how environmental factors such as nutrition and stress alter communication between the resident microbiota, intestine, and brain, his work strives to formulate dietary interventions that reduce gastrointestinal symptoms during functional gastrointestinal disorders, psychological stress, and cancer.

Loman’s research interests include microbial regulation of intestinal physiology, dietary modulation of enteric microbial metabolism, microbiota-gut-brain axis and stress, and functional gastrointestinal disorders.
