Microbiome Interview Series Banner - Chris Damman

The Microbiome Movement recently had the delight of interviewing Chris Damman from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and discussed his career, research, his vision of the future, and how it all started. Download the full interview here:

So, how did Chris get started with his work in the microbiome space?

“It was a choice between hunting for pathogens in the jungles of the developing world or pursuing the commensal microbes in the jungles of the gut. I choose the jungles of the gut at the time, but fate works in a funny way – and here I am back traveling the world and helping folks in places where help is really needed. It is incredibly gratifying!”

Chris joined us at last year’s Microbiome Movement – Human Nutrition Summit in November. If you’re interested in getting involved for our 2019 program, please contact us at
