The Fred Hutch Microbiome Research Initiative (MRI) links Fred Hutch investigators across every division who share a common interest in microbiome research, capitalizing on recent advances in the field and catalyzing nascent research that impacts cancer and infectious diseases. The MRI includes investigators with expertise in study design, laboratory methods, animal models, human intervention studies, data analysis, and visualization, including 16S and 18S rRNA gene sequence libraries, bacterial genomes and metagenomes, metatranscriptomes, metaproteomes, and metabolomes. Together we strive to predict health outcomes, understand the pathogenesis of disease, and manipulate the microbiota to promote health.
