Research Title: ELEVATE: ‘Early-Life PrEdiction of Stress-Induced ViscerAl SensiTivity E’

Project Summary: Early-life represents a critical neuro-developmental window during which an organism is particularly vulnerable to stressful insults that can have deleterious effects on both psychological well-being and gastrointestinal (GI) function. The main aim of the ELEVATE project is to identify a microbiome-gut-brain axis signature of visceral pain to predict in early life the susceptibility to the development of stress-induced GI and mental disorders later in adulthood. ELEVATE represents a strategic approach to study the modulation of the gut microbiome-host interactions and opens a new scenario for innovative therapeutic strategies and personalized medicine with a positive impact on industry and society through improvement of body and mind healthcare along the lifespan
