The Human Microbiology Institute
From Tomorrow’s Science to Future Innovation
The Human Microbiology Institute (HMI) is an independent not-for-profit scientific research organization addressing some of society’s biggest medical challenges and unmet medical needs in such areas as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, dementia, metabolic disorders, various cancers, age-related infectious diseases, spreading of antibiotic resistance, etc.
Focusing on the causes of diseases rather than on treatment of the consequences, we have evaluated consistent patterns of the interaction between microbiota and humans, discovered novel pathogens and identified fundamentally new causes of currently untreated diseases. We further looked into the fundamental aspects of the aging processes and proposed new and innovative potential therapies for increasing human longevity.
This helped us develop a theoretical basis for tomorrow’s medicine as well as unique methods and approaches for studying microbiome with the ultimate goal of translating these discoveries into human healthcare.
We are delighted to share our knowledge with the entire scientific community, as we believe that our combined efforts will accelerate the development of novel therapeutics for improving global human health.
