How Polymers Shape the Physicochemical Environment of the Gut

Asher Preska Steinberg
The gut is where food is digested and nutrients are absorbed, therapeutics are often delivered, and many infections take hold. The gut microbiota is in symbiosis with its host, and can influence host health and behavior. Though the gut holds these central roles, little is understood about the physics of how soft materials interact with and shape the physicochemical environment of the gut. Soft materials abound in the gut in the form of particulates (e.g.,...
