Dr Christopher Lowry
Christopher A. Lowry, Ph.D. is an Associate Professor in the Department of Integrative Physiology at the University of Colorado Boulder, with a secondary appointment in the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R), University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, School of Medicine, a member of the Centers for Neuroscience at CU-Boulder and the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, a Principal Investigator in the Department of Veterans Affairs Eastern Colorado Health Care System, VA Rocky Mountain Mental Illness Research, Education, & Clinical Center (MIRECC), Denver Veterans Affairs Medical Center (VAMC), and director of the Behavioral Neuroendocrinology Laboratory at CU-Boulder. Dr Lowry was recently awarded a Young Investigator award from the Brain & Behaviour Research Foundation, a National Science Foundation CAREER award, and the Donald F. Klein Early Career Investigator Award from the Anxiety Disorders Association of America. He is a member of The American Gut Consortium, working to characterize the human gut microbiome based on data from a sample of >5000 individuals in The American Gut Project. He is also Co-Founder and Co-Director, with Dr. Lisa Brenner, of the Military and Veteran Microbiome Consortium for Research and Education (MVM-CoRE). Dr Lowry's research program focuses on understanding 1) stress-related physiology and behaviour with an emphasis on the role of serotonin, a chemical signaling molecule in the body and the brain, and 2) neural mechanisms underlying anxiety and affective disorders, and development of novel strategies for both the prevention and treatment of these disorders and their medical comorbidity, such as allergy, asthma, and inflammatory bowel disease. He has published ~115 peer-reviewed articles and is currently an editorial board member for Stress: The International Journal on the Biology of Stress. The Office of Naval Research, National Institutes of Health, Department of Veterans Affairs Office of Research and Development (VA-ORD), Colorado Clinical & Translational Sciences Institute (CCTSI) Center for Neuroscience, the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE), and the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation currently fund his research. He joined Immodulon's Scientific Advisory Board in March 2016.


IMM-201 Trials - Immodulon

Researchers at the University of Colorado Boulder in the USA led by Dr Chris Lowry, have entered an agreement with Immodulon to perform pre-clinical research with Mycobacterium vaccae NCTC11659 in a variety of laboratory models of mental health disorders.
As part of this programme of work, the University of Colorado Boulder in conjunction with a consortium of Universities in the USA, has been awarded a grant totalling $7.5m from the Department of Defence to study the microbiome and responsiveness to stress to identify strategies for improving resilience to stressors like sleep deprivation and circadian clock issues. Dr Chris Lowry of the University of Colorado, Boulder, USA published a study in PNAS in May 2016 which found that mice injected with M. vaccae were more resilient to stress, showing less fear and anxiety in stressful situations.

CHRISTOPHER LOWRY, PhD - is an associate professor in the Department of Integrative Physiology and Center for Neuroscience at the University of Colorado Boulder and director of the Behavioral Neuroendocrinology Laboratory.
Lowry is developing new strategies to prevent and treat anxiety and depression, including the use of beneficial microbes that live in the gut. CHRISTOPHER LOWRY: My lab has been studying interactions between bacteria, the nervous system and emotional behavior for about 15 years. We've found, for example, that mice exposed to an inactivated soil bacterium called Mycobacterium vaccae increase production of the neurotransmitter serotonin in the brain, which has antidepressant-like effects. Christopher Lowry Christopher Lowry develops new strategies to prevent and treat anxiety and depression, including the use of beneficial gut microbes. LOWRY: I totally agree. TKF: Christopher, you've suggested that a lack of exposure to the many bacteria we evolved with may be contributing to our ills, including psychiatric disorders such as depression and anxiety. If that's the case, can we make up for the past? Mycobacterium vaccae Christopher Lowry has studied the effects of treatment with a common soil bacterium called Mycobacterium vaccae (pictured) in mice. He found that M. vaccae increased the levels of the brain chemical serotonin and decreased anxiety-like behaviors. (Image courtesy Christopher Lowry) LOWRY: There are certain psychiatric disorders like post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, and depression that seem to be associated with increased inflammation, a ramped-up immune response in the body and in the brain. LOWRY: Our current studies use heat-killed bacteria rather than probiotics, which the World Health Organization defines as live microorganisms that confer a health benefit to the host when administered in adequate amounts. We have a series of studies that we're getting ready to publish that suggest that certain types of heat-killed microbes can prevent syndromes that you would expect following chronic stress. We're hoping to conduct similar studies using probiotics in animals and humans. TKF: Have you changed your behavior as a result of your research into the connection between the microbiome and a healthy body and brain? LOWRY: I've certainly altered mine. That being said, as Chris mentioned, diet is a major driver of microbiome configuration and so I think that there is enough reason to believe that specific foods "are better" for the microbiome than others: eating a high fiber diet with lots of fruits and vegetables, resistant starches such as those from seeds and nuts, and, in general, a diet that is closer to the one we evolved to eat, including foods that were available before agriculture and fast food restaurants came along. LOWRY:There are regulatory issues related to giving live or dead bacteria for treatment of psychiatric and neurological disorders, and those are significant issues that will have to be dealt with.

For a preview of the live webinar, read The Mind-bending Power of Bacteria, a recent roundtable discussion with The Kavli Foundation featuring Sarkis Mazmanian and Christopher Lowry.
On January 15, neuroscientist Christopher Lowry discussed the emerging science that's connecting the microbiome - the community of microbes that inhabit the body - with brain health, including whether we can treat common brain disorders through the gut.
