About MicrobioSocial

MicrobioSocial is a graduate working group across the University of California campuses. We are drawn together by our shared interest in the human microbiome (the collective trillions of microorganisms that live in and on the human body), and various other entanglements of humans and microbes, including food fermentation, bodily ecologies, outbreak narratives, probiotics and illness.

We are funded by the University of California Humanities Research Institute.
