BiotiQuest® Gut Health & Probiotics Blog with Martha Carlin

Gut microbiome and its connection to Parkinson's disease with Maximal Being Being and Martha Carlin | Part 1, Podcast 77

Martha Carlin | Mar 20, 2024 | Podcast


Joining us today at Maximal Being Fitness, Nutrition, and Gut Health is Martha Carlin aka the "Poop Queen," shares her journey from being an auditor to founding a microbiome research company after her husband's Parkinson's disease diagnosis. She quit her job, founded the BioCollective, and collected fecal samples to build a giant poop bank and computational models to understand the problem and find solutions.

With gratitude,

Martha Carlin photo Martha Carlin, is a “Citizen Scientist”, systems thinker, wife of Parkinson’s warrior, John Carlin, and founder of The BioCollective , a microbiome company expanding the reach of science and BiotiQuest, the first of it’s kind probiotic line. Since John’s diagnosis in 2002, Martha began learning the science of agriculture, nutrition, environment, infectious disease, Parkinson’s pathology and much more. In 2014, when the first research was published showing a connection between the gut bacteria and the two phenotypes of Parkinson’s, Martha quit her former career as a business turnaround expert and founded The BioCollective to accelerate the discovery of the impact of gut health on all human disease. Martha was a speaker at the White House 2016 Microbiome Initiative launch, challenging the scientific community to “think in a broader context”. Her systems thinking background and experience has led to collaborations across the scientific spectrum from neuroscience to engineering to infectious disease. She is a respected out of the box problem solver in the microbiome field and brings a unique perspective to helping others understand the connections from the soil to the food to our guts and our brains.
