Coordinating and Assisting Research at the SARS-CoV-2/Microbiome Nexus


Although the COVID-19 pandemic is caused by a single virus, the rest of the human microbiome appears to be involved in the disease and could influence vaccine responses while offering opportunities for microbiome-directed therapeutics. The newly formed Microbiome Centers Consortium (MCC) surveyed its membership and identified four ways to leverage the strengths and experience of microbiome centers in the response to the COVID-19 pandemic. To meet these needs, the MCC will provide a platform to coordinate clinical and environmental research, assist with practical obstacles, and help communicate the connections between the microbiome and COVID-19. We ask that microbiome researchers join us in these efforts to address the ongoing pandemic.
