We ran The Juno Study. Over 1000 womxn across the US registered to be part of the biggest IRB approved study of its kind to power up womxn’s health research with the richest, most representative repository of vaginal microbiomes. This study has already shed light on patterns that will raise the standard of care possible for womxn across the world.
At Juno Bio, we’re working to close the gender health gap. Womxn’s health research has been sidelined for far too long and vaginal health is badly in need of a good scientific sorting out. In particular, vaginal health conditions associated with vaginal microbes - aka the vaginal microbiome - such as bacterial vaginosis and infertility, are massively under researched.
We think it’s ridiculous that millions of women around the world are experiencing problems due to a disrupted vaginal microbiome.
Juno Bio is working to help women take control of their vaginal microbiome wellness.
