Discover the microbiome in you
There are as many microbial cells as human cells in our bodies. This collection of microbial cells is known as the human microbiome. With roughly 1lb (.45kg) of them in our gut alone, we’re on a mission to make critical discoveries about their role in our lives. Based at the University of California San Diego, our scientists are recruiting people like you to help make medical breakthroughs by advancing this monumental research project.
