Alongside this, there has been a disastrous lack of funding for biomedical research into the illness. Thankfully, there is a growing body of open-minded scientists

What It Is To Be Human: Holobionts and the Microbiology of Myalgic Encephalomyelitis

By Bronc Dr. Amy Proal, of the PolyBio Research Foundation, is a microbiologist interested in the molecular mechanisms by which bacterial, fungal and viral pathogens dysregulate human gene expression, immunity and metabolism. She is especially interested in how dysfunction of the human microbiome and/or the human virome can contribute to chronic inflammatory disease processes. We sat down with Dr. Amy
