our mission

The Center for Microbiome Sciences & Therapeutics (CMiST) will serve as a hub of collaboration and connectivity for researchers and clinicians at the University of Washington and its affiliated campuses. Its main goals are to advance the understanding of the dynamic interaction between the microbiome and our own cells, to drive discovery of microbiome-based drugs to treat inflammatory bowel disease and other inflammatory disorders and to supporting an arts and science program designed to educate and inspire the community about the importance of the microbiome in maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
