Innovative insights into the role of the human microbiome in controlling disease

As we discover more about our microbiome—the collection of bacteria, fungi, and viruses that live on and in our bodies—we gain fascinating insights into how intricately entwined our health is with that of these microbial partners. Not only do they play a role in the digestion of our food, but evidence now shows that the metabolites that they release can directly and indirectly impact our health and the etiology of human disease. As our understanding grows, we can take advantage of this knowledge to identify new disease pathways and potential treatments based on the microbiome.
