Your philanthropy will support our groundbreaking research to better understand the causes of metabolic diseases and the role of the microbiota in diseases such as obesity, diabetes, gout, etc. The Human Microbiology Institute has already made an important discovery in this area, which is described in the «Microbiota Diseases » section.
Elucidating the Role of the Microbiota in Metabolic Disorders is More Crucial Than Ever
The HMI is dedicated to searching for novel human pathogens, characterizing the role of these organisms in metabolic disorders, and evaluating the particularities of their role in host-microbiota cross-talk, as they pertain to human disease. With your assistance, we will gain a better understanding of the pathogenesis of obesity, Type 1 and 2 diabetes, gout, etc., and develop methods for the prevention and treatment of these diseases.
