The BMR Laboratory Approach

"You live in intimate association with bacteria, and you couldn't survive without them."

— Bonnier Bassler

Human microbiome-based diagnostics and therapeutics at the frontier of personalized medicine.

Taken together, the microbiome is emerging as an integral part of precision medicine as it not only contributes to interindividual variability in all aspects of a disease but can also be employed as diagnostic tools and represent a potentially modifiable factor, unlike host genes, that can then be targeted by probiotics, prebiotics, diet, as well as community replacement approaches such as fecal microbiota transplant.

The utilization of modern techniques and global research collaboration have allowed our laboratory to continuously pursue the aim of discovering novel methods to enhance the quality-of-life and health of citizens around the world.
