The human body is home to trillions of microorganisms, which are collectively known as the microbiome. Microbes in the gut play a critical role in digestion, vitamin metabolism, and disease progression/prevention and have been linked to gastrointestinal, cardiovascular, metabolic, and kidney conditions (among others). The vaginal microbiome plays an important role in vaginal and cervical health, transmission of disease, and potentially in pregnancy and childbirth.
We know that the medical literature shows certain microbiome profiles are associated with conditions and symptoms, with far reaching effects in just about every organ system. This opens a key opportunity for clinical research, and uBiome is opening up this clinical research opportunity to clinicians worldwide to submit research ideas and proposals.
Sample kits and sequencing services
Bioinformatics microbiome analysis services
Clinical research study consulting services
Just about any exposure may alter the microbiome: diets, exercise plans, medications, supplements, environments, procedures, etc.
Does your unique approach to patient care have better outcomes than the standard of care? Find out if your success is rooted in the microbiome!
If you have an existing relevant study, often microbiome analysis can be added as another outcome.
Any practicing clinician or researcher with at least one clinician as part of the team may submit. Students and trainees may submit a proposal with or without faculty but will need faculty support in order to accept an award.
Judges will evaluate studies holistically and the following are guidelines as to how judges evaluate entries. These questions are just illustrative examples and are not exhaustive. Even if an idea does not address each of the categories, promising ideas and proposals may still become collaborations with further feedback and development.
Even if you’re new to clinical research or microbiome science, we value your clinical expertise and patient relationships. Our clinical research team can help turn your idea into a microbiome clinical study and feature you as an author. Or if you’re already a seasoned clinical researcher, we can step back and just serve as your research laboratory--often at no cost to you.
We accept proposals from any licensed healthcare provider, practicing in a clinical setting, including:
In addition to our extensive clinical work, we are trusted by over 1,000 researchers from top institutions to expertly handle research studies.
We provide clinical and research laboratory services for you to test the impact of your practices on the microbiome. Study what you’re already doing, or a new treatment protocol you want to start or augment. We provide the clinical reports and can provide raw data.
We support research as simple as a case report and as complex as a multicenter randomized clinical trial. We support the study of diagnosis, therapy, prognosis, risk stratification, monitoring and more.
Not sure how to set up a study? We can help with protocol, IRB requirements and analysis.
We send you or your patient the collection kits. Patients sample at home.
We can hand over the raw data, or our bioinformatics team can help analyze it for you.
We can help write the paper or help you get your own published.
Through our shared discoveries we aim to improve patient care and clinical outcomes
