The Center for Mucosal & Microbiome Biology (CMMB)

From basic science to clinical trials: spearheading research and educational initiatives focused on the role of the microbiome and the associated metabolites in health and diseases.

Our Mission

The Center for Mucosal & Microbiome Biology (CMMB) sits on the cutting edge of microbiome research and education at UT Health San Antonio, serving as an intellectual nexus for basic and translational immunology.


The Center for Mucosal & Microbiome Biology hosted its Inaugural Symposium on Host-Microbiome Interactions, on November 3, 2022 at the Greehey Children’s Cancer Research Institute Auditorium.


Researchers and healthcare professionals alike gathered for a day-long program packed with talks featuring the latest discoveries in the field of microbiome research and touched on exciting topics, such as the oral-gut-brain axis. The Symposium hosted speakers from nationally recognized institutions, such as Dartmouth College and the National Institutes of Health, to present their cutting-edge research to the San Antonino Basic Science community.  The inaugural event was well-attended, boasting nearly 100 researchers from UTHSA, UTSA & TBRI.
