A new initiative to foster microbiome research and education in Austria

Did you know that your body is home to a social-network of billions of microbial friends? And that most of these microbes are 'real' friends as they contribute to our health? Ongoing research is continuously revealing exciting news about the impact that our microbiota has on our well-being. A new initiative now provides a multi-disciplinary platform for microbiome research and education in Austria. AMICI - the Austrian Microbiome Initiative -  connects both individual microbiome researchers and the many national science and medical societes with the goals to improve knowledge exchange between different disciplines, enable joint research projects, and communicate research outcomes to the public.
