The Durian Project

SingHealth Duke-NUS Institute of Biodiversity Medicine (BD-MED) aims to conduct a research study to understand the impact of durian consumption on the human Microbiome and Metabolome in healthy individuals!

Your gift can help us study how eating Durian changes the microbiome, and how such changes can contribute to better treatment outcomes in the future.
