The Microbiome Initiative:

Connecting the Microbiome to Health
The complexity of the microbiome — intricate biological communities inside humans, animals, and even the soil — is vast. Their connections have the potential to benefit health and well-being. But rigorous science is required to ensure that medical, veterinary, dietary and soil-management interventions targeting the microbiome are effective and well-understood. This theme brings together OSU experts from biology, human and veterinary medicine, computer science, mathematics, behavioral sciences, social sciences and engineering to better understand microbiome-associated diseases and processes that impact health.
In support of microbiome initiative activities, the Oklahoma Center for Microbiome Research was established with funding from an NIH Institutional Development Award (IDeA) to establish a Center of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE) with a thematic, multidisciplinary focus on microbiome science.
