uBiome CEO Jessica Richman Speaks at TEDMED, Launches Website
Date:4/18/2013

San Francisco, CA and Washington, DC (PRWEB) April 18, 2013

uBiome Founder and CEO Jessica Richman will speak at the annual TEDMED conference in Washington DC on uBiome, a biotech startup that aims to understand the health impact of the trillions of microbes living on and in our bodies. At the same time, San Francisco-based biotech startup uBiome will launch its sales website at http://www.ubiome.com.

The uBiome crowdfunding campaign is the largest successful citizen science initiative, raising over $350,000 and involving over 2,500 participants from over 40 countries, who pledged their support in exchange for having their microbiomes sequenced, including the Australia, Canada, Netherlands, France, Germany, India, Singapore, Israel, Uruguay, Bulgaria, South Africa, Estonia and the United Arab Emirates.

uBiome provides participants with a catalog of their own microbes. The service details the microbial composition of the body, explains what is known about each type of microbe, and relates the participant's microbiome information to the latest scientific research on the role of the microbiome in health, diet and lifestyle. The uBiome website provides tools so that users can anonymously compare their results with those of family, friends, and the crowd.

“The more people that participate, the more statistical power is available to answer important scientific questions. The NIH study was a fantastic start, and we are scaling up so we can use ‘Big Data’ to get the answers to the big questions about health and disease.” said co-founder and Chief Science Officer Zachary Apte, PhD.    

There are 10 times as many microbial cells as human cells in our bodies. These microbes are co-evolved symbionts, essential collaborators in human life. Like the rainforest, the healthy human microbiome is a balanced ecosystem. The l
