Bio:

Lucy Mailing is a fourth-year MD-PhD student in the Division of Nutritional Sciences at the University of Illinois. She was recently named an Emerging Leader in Nutrition Science by the American Society for Nutrition and has co-authored several seminal papers in exercise science that were featured in the New York Times. Lucy is also a staff research associate for the Kresser Institute for Functional and Evolutionary Medicine and ChrisKresser.com.

Her laboratory research focuses on understanding how lifestyle factors like diet and exercise can beneficially modulate the gut microbiome and gut barrier function in states of health and disease. She hopes to make a significant impact on the greater scientific and medical community through both outstanding clinical practice and novel academic research.
