MyByome is a research company dedicated to furthering our understanding of the human microbiome and specifically developing new applications in personalized health. The human microbiome is an ecological collection of microorganisms living on and in us, including commensal bacteria, bacteriophages, and fungi. Therefore, this symbiotic relationship has become central to our overall wellness and longevity. Likewise, an inadequate or dysfunctional microbiome contributes to human diseases.
We have focused our research efforts on therapeutic microbiota found in human Gastrointestinal tract, skin, oral and urogenital niches. We have spent over a decade identifying, optimizing, growing, and stabilizing probiotic and prebiotic candidates. Our scientists created novel conditions for isolation, identification, characterization, and fermentation of beneficial or clinically important probiotic strains. With each significant probiotic discovery, we identified many prebiotic requirements necessary for healthy colonization of probiotic consortia and symbiotic inter-relationships.
Ultimately, our research has led to cutting edge, patented probiotic and prebiotic formulas directed at important human health concerns. Our course correcting approach to re-colonizing and diversifying the microbiota will have long lasting benefits.
