Diego V. Bohórquez

Principal Investigator

Diego’s expertise is a rare, but synergistic, blend of nutritional biochemistry, gastrointestinal physiology, and sensory neurobiology. His ambition is to uncover the neural circuits that allow the brain to perceive what the gut senses. Diego believes that this knowledge will serve two purposes: 1_it will be a foundation to treat the brain from the gut, and 2_ it will uncover routes through which pathogens may access the brain and cause neurodegenerative diseases.
