A Living Drug Cocktail

We know that the 100 trillion microbes in the human body are important to our health. What’s harder to know is how to use them to make us healthy.

We are working to provide doctors and patients with an entirely new option to treat human disease: medicines based on live bacterial consortia that can colonize the human intestine. We believe developing this new type of medicines takes careful science and the best brains in the fields of microbial ecology, immunology, bioinformatics, process development, and manufacturing, among others. If you find this as exciting as we do, we want to hear from you!
