Wearing antiperspirant or deodorant doesn't just affect your social life, it substantially changes the microbial life that lives on you.
In October, an interdisciplinary group of scientists proposed forming a Unified Microbiome Initiative (UMI) to explore the world of microorganisms that are central to life on Earth and yet largely remain a mystery.
GOJO Scientists, Leading Researchers Study Emerging Hand Microbiome Science and Its Impact on Health
Leading experts in hand hygiene, skin health science and the human microbiome recently published “Review of Human Hand Microbiome Research” in
For the first time, scientists can accurately measure population growth rates of the microbes that live inside mammalian gastrointestinal tracts, according to a new method reported in Nature Communications by a team at the Wyss Institute
Leading scientists have joined together and called for an interdisciplinary, public-private initiative focused on the microbiome.
A consortium of 48 scientists from 50 institutions in the United States -- including Pamela Silver, PhD, a core faculty member at the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University -- are calling for a Unified
Researchers report that a patient's microbial diversity, even before they start cancer treatment, can be linked to risk of infection during induction chemotherapy.
New research on sickle cell disease (SCD) has found that using antibiotics to deplete the body's microbiome may prevent acute sickle cell crisis and could offer the first effective strategy for warding off the disease's long-term complica
In the most comprehensive study to date, researchers at the George Washington University have identified a potential link between microbes (viruses, bacteria and fungi) in the throat and schizophrenia.
With every breath you take, microbes have a chance of making it into your lungs. But what happens when they get there? And why do dangerous lung infections like pneumonia happen in some people, but not others? Researchers at the University of Michigan Medical School have started to answer these questions by studying the microbiome of the lungs - the community of microscopic organisms are in constant contact with our respiratory system. By studying these bacterial communities, and how they change in illness, they hope to pave the way for new ways to prevent and fight lung infections in patients.
