The goal of our Translational Microbiome Research Center is the systematic promotion of microbiomics research at the University Hospital Zurich.
The center, headed by Prof. Dr. Michael Scharl, has two thematic focuses:
The center thus concentrates on the continuous improvement of patient care through research and subsequent implementation of innovative diagnostic and therapeutic methods.
For a rapid, translational development of such innovative, microbiome-based treatment methods targeting various diseases, we are interested in synergistic alliances with like-minded research groups. Within this framework, sharing of expertise and established analysis pipelines enables mutually beneficial collaborations.
