UC San Diego is a world-leader in microbiome research, biomedical engineering, quantitative measurements and modeling, cellular and chemical imaging, drug discovery, "omics" sciences and much more. We draw interdisciplinary teams of these researchers together to push the boundaries of human understanding of microbiomes — the distinct constellations of bacteria, viruses and other microorganisms that live within and around humans, other species and the environment.
