Elaine Patterson, Ph.D., is senior scientist and technical lead of the gut-brain health platform at IFF Health. Long curious about the links between diet, the gut microbiome and health, she has degrees in neuroscience and microbiology. During post-doctoral research at APC Microbiome Ireland, Patterson dived deep into the microbiome-gut-brain axis. Today, she continues to explore how dietary supplements, including probiotics, can impact brain physiology, function and behavior to influence human health.
