Biodesign Center for Health through Microbiomes

Learn more about your impact

Solving problems in the natural world sometimes requires looking within. At the Biodesign Center for Health through Microbiomes, that means studying what we’re (literally) made of — microbiomes.

For example, Professor Rosa Krajmalnik-Brown conducts clinical work on managing autism through microbiota transplant therapy as well as the microbiome’s contribution to energy balance and human metabolism.

Krajmalnik-Brown is just one of many researchers in the Biodesign Center for Health through Microbiomes who are developing microbe-based health interventions and diagnostics. Your gift directly supports our work to build capacity and expertise in microbiome research and create strong clinical and industrial collaborations.
