Today, we support FMT programs at over 1000 medical centers across all 50 states and 7 countries, and have delivered over 30,000 treatments for recurrent C. difficile patients. We have also developed a new oral formulation for delivering FMT, published dozens of scholarly works and have supported over 30 clinical studies to identify new applications for FMT. As the leader in this exciting new field, OpenBiome is uniquely positioned to continue to expand access to care and discover new applications for microbial interventions. We are searching for passionate teammates eager to support this mission.
