Science is poised to unlock a new class of therapies that improve health by modulating the vast community of bacteria living within us. Already, we know that infusing microbiota from a healthy gut can treat the most common hospital-acquired infection in the country, C. difficile. Early signs suggest that the microbiome may have profound effects on human health.
We work with a broad spectrum of researchers exploring the microbiome's role, and facilitate collaborations across our network.
