The Oxford Interdisciplinary Microbiome Project (IMP) recently launched its official project website.
IMP is a new incubator initiative of the University’s Social Sciences Division that will explore new understandings of microbial life and the social and public policy implications of new microbionomic knowledge.
Our ability to map previously invisible forms of microbial life in and around us is forcing us to rethink the biological constitution of the world, and the position of humans vis-a-vis other forms of life. IMP brings together researchers from Anthropology, Geography and History of Medicine to develop an interdisciplinary research agenda on the microbiome and its implications.
