Professor Mangano's research interests include exploring the relation between diet, gastrointestinal health and musculoskeletal outcomes. Current laboratory projects aim to elucidate: 1) the effects of fermented dairy on the gut microbiome and bone; 2) the impact of food additives on gut homeostasis and the gut microbiome; and 3) the complex interactions of diet, the gut microbiome and cardiometabolic health. Future research directions include developing dietary interventions to improve gut homeostasis and overall health.
