114. Why LeBron’s Poop Could Help You Lose Weight, GMOs Rock and Your Gut Gets Last Word on Disease | Zack Abbott of ZBiotics

ZBiotics founder Zach Abbott

Zack Abbott (@ZBioticsCompany) is the CEO and co-founder of ZBiotics, a company developing bioengineered probiotics for optimum human performance. He holds a Ph.D. in Microbiology and Immunology from the University of Michigan and developed ZBiotics’ core technology: probiotic bacteria genetically engineered to express targeted protein therapies directly inside the body. By building genetically engineered products that solve real human needs, he hopes to reverse the misinformation and lack of understanding that has contributed to the negative public perception of GMOs. In a past life, he worked with Rhesus monkeys to develop potential vaccines or cures for HIV and other infectious diseases.
