Gut Design Project - Co-creation of a new market of "Gut Design" & Corporate collaboration
in the quest for stratified medicine and health care -
What is Gut Design Project?

The "Gut Design Project" is a collaborative consortium challenging to revolutionize the medical and health care field by sharing and disseminating the concept of "Gut Design" and in turn co-creating the unprecedented "Gut Design Market".

At Metabologenomics. Inc., we define "Gut Design" as the modulation of the intestinal environment with the power of frontier science. The intestinal environment varies individually depending on the person's lifestyle or diet, and the effect of products they consume will also be determined by which type of intestinal environment one occupies. Therefore, we strongly believe that in order to reach sustainable health and to prevent illnesses, we must realize stratified medicine and health care in which people choose what to consume according to their individual intestinal environment types.

However, it will be difficult for us alone to socially implement "Gut Design", we are in desperate need of the insights, know-how, and multi-faceted perspectives that each company can offer, given that the companies we have been honored to be involved with specialize across multiple fields.

This project will cooperate with participating companies to aim for the creation of a new market in order to let the concept of "Gut Design" to sink into the society and to start kicking in the product development based on the intestinal environment.

To partner enterprises who participated in the project, we will be able to offer opportunities for inter-corporate collaborations through our original "Research and Development Supporting Platform", assessment tests to discover which intestinal environment type suits your products, and acceleration of your research and development.
