The Center for Microbiome Sciences & Therapeutics (CMiST), part of the UW Medicine’s Department of Medicine and Division of Gastroenterology, is a scientific research center committed to understanding the dynamic interactions between the microbiome and our own human cells, to advancing the development of microbiome-based biotherapeutics to treat or prevent disease and to educating the community about the importance of the microbiome in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. To accomplish these goals, CMiST has established a world class team of clinicians, scientists and educators that span biomedical and basic science departments as well as the arts.
With access to a brand new germ-free animal facility, Innovations Services devoted to understanding host-microbial and microbial-microbial interactions, and an environment that promotes scientific rigor, fosters creativity, believes in the value of arts in science and celebrates out-of-the-box thinking, CMiST will be a beacon for translational microbiome research.
