Dr. Bäumler received his PhD from the University of Tübingen, Germany, in 1992, he trained as a postdoc at the Oregon Health Sciences University in Portland, OR, and held positions as Assistant and Associate Professor at Texas A&M University before accepting a position as Professor at the University of California Davis in 2005. Dr. Bäumler pioneered studies on the physiology of enteric pathogens in the natural context of a host-associated microbial community. This work identified epithelial energy metabolism as host control mechanism critical for maintaining homeostasis. Gut dysbiosis resulting from disruption of this host control mechanism underlies a broad range of non-communicable diseases.
