  • Karim Dabbagh, Second Genome

Second Genome has assembled a one-of-a-kind drug discovery platform that integrates microbiome and host biology for the identification of novel targets and drugs. This approach is based on understanding microbial community composition and its function in healthy and diseased conditions. Our powerful data analysis techniques enable the identification of microbes and microbial biomarkers that influence a given disease state. Combined with our expertise in drug development, our team has built the foundation for the rapid discovery of new therapeutic options for patients in a numerous microbiome-related diseases.

Second Genome’s microbiome modulating discovery platform allows us to generate and evaluate small molecules, peptide biologic and bacterial strains that modulate microbe-microbe and microbe-human interactions. By integrating our in vivo models with our in silico analyses we are able to understand how these compounds improve health and eliminate disease.
