Ubiome

Ubiome is a company looking at the way in which health is related to the bacteria which live in (and on) us – focussing on our gut, skin, mouth, genitals and nose. They went from being a crowd-funded start-up to working with the Center for Disease Control (CDC) in three years, and are growing both their database and army of ‘citizen scientists’ at considerable speed.

Why are we stopping here?

uBiome is using a new model of science to explore a little understood area of human biology with new technology – and it is doing it fast. With backing from stalwarts in the Silicon Valley scene, such as Andreesson Horowitz and Y Combinator, they are developing the largest database on the microbiomes existing in, and alongside, volunteers. As everyone’s microbiome consists of between two and six pounds of bacteria – carrying out vital activities within your body – this knowledge may have profound impact on our understanding of disease. The Center for Disease Control is using their tools to research hospital acquired infections, and uBiome launched a clinically meaningful (and physician focussed) gut biome test in late 2016.

Prepare to meet a company who is carrying out research which may change the way we even think about our health.

See the Life Sciences model change in front of your eyes

Ubiome is just one of the stops we will be making in San Francisco. We will see how they see the industry changing – and hear about what part they are playing in it. Experiencing the full range of disruption – from start-ups, to investors, physicians and academic centres, we will be astounded at the pace and possibility of change.

Get your seat!

Join us on this unique 5-day tour to the heart of the action in healthcare disruption, and be amazed+inspired!
