Microbiome in Health and Disease

Master
Content

The human body is in a symbiotic relationship with trillions of microbes, many of which are essential for optimal health.  The past decade has witnessed an explosion of research which has demonstrated that altering these bacterial communities can contribute significantly to disease.  Our research in microbiome in health and disease is aimed at providing a deeper understanding of these host:microbial interactions with the ultimate goal of translating this knowledge into microbial based human therapeutics.

This research is supported by the Alkek Center for Metagenomics and Microbiome Research (CMMR) which serves an international hub for the development and implementation of advanced technologies and offers cutting-edge research facilities, including a germ-free rodent facility.
