2015 ❯ NEWS: Breast vs Bottle Feeding
in Rhesus Monkeys
Infant rhesus monkeys receiving different diets early in
life develop distinct immune
systems that persist months
after weaning, a study by
researchers from UC Davis, the
California National Primate
Research Center (CNPRC)
at UC Davis, and UC San
Francisco has shown. The study,
which compares breast- and bottle-fed infants,
appears in Science Translational Medicine.
While the researchers expected different
diets would promote different intestinal bacteria
(microbiota), they were surprised at how dramatically these microbes shaped immunologic
development. Specifically, breast-fed macaques
had more “memory” T cells and T helper 17
(TH17) cells, which are known to fight salmonella and other pathogens.
These differences persisted for months after
the macaques had been weaned and placed
on identical diets, indicating that variations in
early diet may have long-lasting effects.
The lab is planning similar studies in
humans to test that hypothesis.

How to Explain Complex
Scientific Ideas to Any Audience
How do different cell types
remember their identities over
many cell generations? Leonie
Ringrose heads a group at
the Institute of Molecular
Biotechnology in Vienna that aims to illumi-
nate the behavior of protein groups charged
with this task. And she is so excited by the
work—by the biology of life—she wants
everyone to delight in science. So she has a
parallel life training investigators to explain
the basics of their research—something at
which, it turns out, Leonie is very, very good.
I spoke with Leonie about what’s in her com-
munications toolkit and what it takes to explain
even complex scientific ideas to colleagues, stu-
dents, interested public, and the press.
