When asked about her team’s biggest success to date, Marina Walther-Antonio, a Mayo Clinic researcher, highlights the recently published study in Genome Medicine, identifying a unique vaginal microbiome for patients with endometrial cancer. This new discovery could lead to a biomarker for early detection and screening for the disease. It has led to similar research projects to study the impact of the microbiome on ovarian cancer.

Bacteria in a Bottle: Commercialising a Field in Development

The consumer products industry is built on well-established pillars. It’s a creative and dynamic industry with a clear playbook. While launching a brand or product is not trivial, this general rinse-repeat (pun intended) formula that the market leaders are able to leverage is a big part of why the consumer products industry among the largest on the planet and has continued to grow.

11 Lessons From Microbiome Research that Changed the way we Approach Microbes

Written by Marcelline Goyen

Amsterdam was full of “international microbes” during the 4th Microbiome R&D and Business Collaboration Forum: Europe. More than 300 people interested in human microbiomes met at the Beurs van Berlage to listen to current research and meet colleagues and partners.

As an editor for Nederlands Tijdschrift voor Huidtherapie (NTVH), a Dutch magazine for Skin Therapy, and a skin therapist interested in the microbiome, I was lucky to be able to attend this meeting and I’d like to share with you some of the insights I gained.
