Important Works about the Cancer Microbiome
While scientists have waded into theories surrounding the relationship between cancer and microbes for hundreds of years, it was only recently that research has put the pieces together to demonstrate the undeniable role of the microbiome in the biology of this disease. We can now go deeper than ever in understanding and using microbiome science for cancer detection.
This is a curated space for those who want to know more about the science behind the cancer microbiome. We provide these resources to help educate those who are curious about the history, the science, and the potential of the microbiome to diagnose and treat important human health issues, like cancer.
Here, we focus on landmark studies on the cancer microbiome, links to published articles, books, reviews, TedTalks, and podcasts featuring Micronoma founders, our Scientific Advisory Board members, and our trusted community of science colleagues. These individuals and their work have advanced the field in ways that are exciting and paradigm shifting, allowing for new possibilities in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer, and great hope for a better handle on this abominable disease.

Important Publications in the Cancer Field
The role of the microbiome in diagnosing and treating illnesses, including cancer, is a fairly new field, with a surge of research and publications in the last ten years. Micronoma’s focus on early cancer diagnosis utilizing liquid biopsy emerged in 2020, and we want to recognize the broader field of knowledge building up around cancer and the microbiome in general.
