Kazuyuki obtained his M.D. from Kobe University, Japan, and completed his medical training in cardiology. In his PhD training, he studied T-cell immune responses associated with cardiovascular diseases. He performed his postdoctoral training with Dr. Federico E. Rey at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where he explored connections between diet-microbiome interactions. His research focuses on the gut microbiome, investigating the diet-microbe-host interactions and their effects on cardiometabolic and vascular diseases for the discovery of novel biomarkers and therapeutics.
Kazuyuki will be part of the Active Lifestyle Nutrition / Protein Innovation / Men’s Health session on Day 2.
