Interested in contributing to our
research study on the human gut
Are you an individual/citizen scientist of ages between 20-60 years? Consider participating in our study while staying at home!
What is the study about?
The purpose of this research is to test the prototype for
commercialization of the Gut CheckTM analysis kit to uncover
the gut microbiome. Why microbiome? The microbes within
your gut include bacteria, viruses, etc. play a crucial role in
maintaining good health. Maintaining good balance of these
microbes in the gut will benefit the health of the individual.
The imbalance in diversity of bacteria can lead to short term
effects such bloating, indigestion, change in mood or energy
levels. Scientific research shows that these imbalances can
lead to chronic long-term effects such as obesity, diabetes,
IBS, IBD, cancer, depression, Alzheimer's, etc. Our unique Gut
CheckTM analysis kit development allows to understand the
microbial composition in gut and foresee the disease risks.
Who can participate?
We are looking for adults of age 20-60 yrs. who can be able
to consent independently.
You can participate while staying at home! Once participation
