Microbiota: what is it?

The Microbiome, a new organ by itself important for health and wellbeing
A healthy microbiome is a well-balanced ecological community of commensal or symbiotic microorganisms present in and on all multicellular organisms and cooperating in symbiosis with the host.

Alterations in this relationship were demonstrated in numerous pathologies. As we continue to improve our understanding of how microbial ecosystems affect the development or progression of several conditions, we are unravelling a new source of potential therapeutic targets and paving the way towards beneficial pharmaceutical innovations for patients (diagnosis, prevention, therapeutic products, etc.).

The European microbiome

European microbiome actors distinguish themselves with innovative R&D and their significant roles within the global sector. They are recognized for their pursuit of excellence and hold leadership positions in their respective fields. By uniting our efforts within EMIH, our goal is to elevate microbiome medical innovation to one of the most promising sectors and to prioritize it within the European Union’s public health agenda. Our ambition is to make these advancements accessible to all patients. Together, let’s make microbiome the flagship of European health innovation.
