IBD Awareness Month

Ulcerative colitis

Australia has one of the highest incidences of IBD worldwide


Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) affects 1 in every 250 Australians, resulting in over 80,000 people. Being such a large issue that impacts so many in our community, it is clear that more investigation into the connection between IBD and the gut microbiome is vital.


“Using our advanced DNA sequencing approach, we are able to discover novel species which we believe are playing a role in IBD.”

– Professor Gene Tyson, Co-founder of Microba

We want to make a difference.

The aim of our Future Insights IBD Research Program is to investigate the gut microbiome’s potential involvement in the onset of Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative colitis, ultimately leading to future therapeutics derived from the gut microbiome.
