Further, it plays an active role in international environmental studies, such as the microbial characterization of the Pacific coast in North America.
- Research – Obesity treatment / Monitoring of patients in the ICU
Microomics works with hospitals and national research groups to characterize the microbiome associated with diseases and evaluate the effect that treatments and interventions have on it. For example, the analysis of the intestinal microbiome to evaluate the effect of probiotics and specific diets to treat childhood obesity, or studying the evolution of the intestinal and pulmonary microbiome in patients hospitalized in intensive care units (ICU).
