Dynamics of the Human Microbiota Stanford researchers need healthy adults to participate in a study to examine the dynamics of the microbial populations that inhabit the colon and other body sites. There are several different arms of the study that last between 6-9 months, and some arms of the study involve deliberate perturbations to the microbiota such as adding resistant starch to the diet for 5 days, taking a short course of the antibiotic ciprofloxacin, or experiencing a 1-day colonic cleansing (a step usually taken before a routine colonoscopy). Dr. Les Dethlefsen dynamics.human.microbiota@gmail.com 650-999-0049 Dynamics of the Human Microbiota 
Human Oral Microbial Communities in States of Hyposalivation We aim to identify features of bacterial communities that distinguish states of health from the acute and chronic states of hyposalivation and the subsequent development of dental cavities. Ultimately, we hope these microbial features may serve as diagnostics, therapeutics, or prognostics. We are recruiting healthy adults over the age of 18 for the Understanding Oral Health Study, adults between the ages of 18 and 55 for the Understanding Acute Hyposalivation Study, and adults over the age of 18 who were diagnosed with Sjögren’s Syndrome for the Understanding Chronic Hyposalivation Study. HyposalivationStudy@UCSF.edu.
