Developing The Next Generation Of Living Medicines
Bloom Science is developing genetically optimized living medicines that target diseases in neurology, immunology and oncology. Our unique approach elucidates connections between clinical outcomes, the microbiome, and critical disease pathways. We then use genetic tools to engineer superior biopharmaceutical properties in our microbiota therapeutics.

Understanding mechanism of action and translating microbiome science into commercially viable therapeutics remains the biggest challenge in this emerging field. With that said, pharma and biotech across many different therapeutic indications and modalities are united in this global effort to bring novel microbiome-based therapies and diagnostics into the clinical domain. This session will include some of the most impactful and promising areas of the Microbiome field and panel discussions on the challenges for faster adoption.
