Biome Diagnostics opened its doors to Trending Topics and talked about gut health and the active role of the Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG) in fostering innovation
VIENNA, 12th September 2023:
Nikolas Gasche, co-founder of myBioma, developed an interest in the gut during his medical studies and, in 2018, co-founded BiomeDx with Barbara Sladek to provide scientifically-based analysis of intestinal bacteria. This microbiome significantly impacts our well-being, immune system, and overall health.
BiomeDx has developed various test kits, including BiomeOne, which is the world’s first immunotherapy response prediction test based on the microbiome. This test not only detects cancer but also assesses the effectiveness of immunotherapy in treating it, helping to prevent potential side effects. The FFG played a significant role in BiomeDx’s product development through its funding programs, including the basic program and the Austrian Life Sciences Program.
