BIOM-Mass Facilities

Backed by generous funding from the Massachusetts Life Sciences Center (MLSC), the BIOM-Mass (Biobank for Microbiome Research in Massachusetts) project is a collaboration with the Brigham and Womens Hospital and Harvard Cohorts Biorepository. BIOM-Mass comprises five major facilities for end-to-end microbiome collection, analysis, and research that supports large-scale microbiome studies, including a flagship collection of oral and gut microbiome samples from 25,000 participants in the Nurses’ Health Study II.
