Humans live in a symbiotic relationship with a massive number of microbes that dwell within us. The human microbiome, a term referring to these organisms and their genetic material, influence all manner of human physiology including immunity, inflammation, neurotransmitter production, provision of vitamins, and even epigenetically modulating the expression of the human genome.

Examine leading edge research to understand the role of microbes in charting our health destiny and examine meaningful strategies for disease treatment and the promotion of health and longevity.
