Dr. Fernando Anhé earned a doctor of dental surgery (DDS) degree from Sao Paulo University (Brazil) in 2007. He also received a Master of Science (MSc) degree from Sao Paulo University in 2010. Dr. Anhé completed his PhD in Physiology-Endocrinology at
Laval University under the supervision of Dr André Marette (Quebec, Canada). His research focuses on immunometabolic aspects driven by gut microbes. He investigates bacterial components and metabolites (postbiotics), and their compartmentalization in the host, to better understand the relationship between the gut microbiota and host metabolic control.


  1. Discuss the role of the gut microbiota post-bariatric surgery in improving host metabolism.
  2. Discuss how different bacterial LPS can affect glucose homeostasis.
