What is the microbiome, and what might studying it reveal about diseases? Researcher Joel Wilmore, PhD, explains the microbiome and which aspects of it he is studying, such as how immunity to various illnesses holds up over time. Wilmore, a microbiologist and immunologist from Upstate, recently won a $2 million grant from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences to study the microbiome.
