National Microbiome Initiative (NMI) of The White House


The National Microbiome Initiative (NMI) aims to advance understanding of microbiome behavior and enable protection and restoration of healthy microbiome function. In a year-long fact-finding process, scientists from Federal agencies, academia, and the private sector converged on three recommended areas of focus for microbiome science, which are now the goals of the NMI:

  • Supporting interdisciplinary research to answer fundamental questions about microbiomes in diverse ecosystems.
  • Developing platform technologies that will generate insights and help share knowledge of microbiomes in diverse ecosystems and enhance access to microbiome data.
  • Expanding the microbiome workforce through citizen science, public engagement, and educational opportunities
