Precision medicine: The need for robust links between the microbiome and cardiovascular disease

In this video, Dr. Sofia Forslund, junior group leader at ECRC (MDC/Charité, Berlin), discusses her research into the relationship between the human microbiome and common cardiovascular diseases. Here, Forslund explains how she hopes that the modeling of missing microbial data will lead to more personalized therapeutics for conditions such as hypertension. Forslund also highlights the importance of avoiding contamination during vital research procedures such as DNA extraction and explains how equipment like NuAire's biosafety cabinets are essential for labs like hers.
