Human Microbiome Project (HMP) Telebriefing Resources

HMP logoThe Human Microbiome Project (HMP) is an interdisciplinary research effort at the National Institutes of Health that aims to characterize the microbial communities found at several different sites on the human body, including nasal passages, oral cavities, skin, gastrointestinal tract, and the urogenital tract, and analyze the role of these microbes in human health and disease.

In a series of coordinated scientific reports published on June 14, 2012, in Nature and several journals in the Public Library of Science (PLoS), some 200 members of the Human Microbiome Project (HMP) Consortium from nearly 80 universities and scientific institutions report on five years of research.
