The Goodman-Luskin Microbiome Center at UCLA serves as a nexus for innovative, translational, interdisciplinary research into the microbiome: the trillions of microorganisms that inhabit the human gut and have been implicated not just in gastrointestinal disorders, but in immune, metabolic, neurological, and psychiatric conditions.

Given the substantial breadth and depth of scientific expertise at UCLA, multidisciplinary groups of basic, clinical and translational researchers cross campus will fuel advances in microbiome research to advance human health.
