OUR CURRENT RESEARCH

Microbiota in COVID-19

We are developing a clinical trial to use IMT in high risk patients, such as those who are older and have diabetes, high blood pressure, or obesity to prevent COVID-19-associated complications and death.

Impact of Diet on Gut Microbes

We are developing a clinical trial to use IMT in high risk patients, such as those who are older and have diabetes, high blood pressure, or obesity to prevent COVID-19-associated complications and death.

Bile Acids in C. difficile Infection

We are developing a clinical trial to use IMT in high risk patients, such as those who are older and have diabetes, high blood pressure, or obesity to prevent COVID-19-associated complications and death.

Pharmacology of Microbiota-Based Therapeutics

We are developing a clinical trial to use IMT in high risk patients, such as those who are older and have diabetes, high blood pressure, or obesity to prevent COVID-19-associated complications and death.

Microbiota in Ulcerative Colitis

We are developing a clinical trial to use IMT in high risk patients, such as those who are older and have diabetes, high blood pressure, or obesity to prevent COVID-19-associated complications and death.

Sulfate IMT for Ulcerative Colitis

We are developing a clinical trial to use IMT in high risk patients, such as those who are older and have diabetes, high blood pressure, or obesity to prevent COVID-19-associated complications and death.
