Translating microbiome science, which has a fundamental and continuous impact on human biology, into transformative prophylaxis and therapies requires multidisciplinary collaboration. The Microbiome, Immunology and Infection Mitigation (MIIM) hub in the Pandemic Response Research Network™ (PRRN) will focus on enabling and connecting an interdisciplinary network of scientists at USF and globally and leveraging the most advanced technologies to rapidly realize the biomedical potential of the microbes that live within and upon us.
The major goals of the hub are to develop precision therapies and interventions that target the human microbiome to maintain and restore human health against COVID-19 and future pandemics.
