A genetic research lab whose interest is to understand the clinical implications of the microbiome. Our broad array of specialties allows us to look beyond fecal transplant to examine other fields of medicine in which dysbiosis could be the culprit of disease.
In collaboration with leading physicians in multiple specialties, spearheads the movement of validating, verifying, and clinically applying its sequencing data, to better understand the microbiome.
We are taking the microbiome to the clinical level to better understand disease, so that it may be better treated and prevented.

Dr. Hazan has done 150 clinical trials in the last 15 years. She explained that we have in our gut up to 100 trillion microbes and that there are more than 150,000 species of them—some well-known, others not so well-known.
Dr. Hazan’s theory is that, just like Penicillin was discovered from the growth of mold, all gut bacteria, gut fungi, and viruses might have properties that have yet to be discovered.
She is currently analyzing the gut microbiome of people with chronic fatigue syndrome, chronic constipation, celiac disease, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, recurrent urinary tract infections, psoriasis, Lyme’s disease, Alzheimers’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, autism, colorectal cancer, obesity, and several other conditions. In doing so, Dr. Hazan is discovering that patients with certain diseases have a very different gut microbiome than people without any disease.
But first let’s take a look at what a microbiome looks like, from Dr. Hazan’s point of view:
