Welcome to the Most Comprehensive Forum for Microbiome Drug Developers

2021 promises to be a pivotal year for the microbiome community, with an abundance of positive news coming from the industry already this year! With recent late-stage clinical successes from Seres Therapeutics and Rebiotix, a Ferring Company, the first and long-awaited approval of a microbiome therapeutic is within touching distance!

Microbiome drug developers are encountering several challenges in understanding the function of the microbiome, achieving clinical success, effectively scaling up production, and stratifying patients for improved clinical successes. Now, the community must gather to:

  • Improve understanding of the mechanistic function of the microbiome, focusing on outlining specific modes of action of live biotherapeutic and small molecule approaches
  • Optimize clinical outcomes with improved trial design and leveraging previous successes, as well as through stratifying patients through clinically relevant biomarkers
  • Achieve a consistent production supply, with purity and scalability at the forefront of our minds to address the growing production demands
