We have 10 times more microbes than human cells and 100 times more microbial genes than human genes. The human microbiome (collection of all microbes) is a fundamental part of our physiology. Dermala is pioneering unique human microbiome-based drug discovery and development. Our approach is based on previously unexplored aspect of the microbiome – metabolome (collection of all metabolites from the microbiome) that plays a critical role in health and/or disease.
