Picture your Microbes
"Picture your Microbes" is a European Project connecting science and visual assets to bring awareness on the importance of our microbiome.
We have participated in this Project connecting science and photography to empowering citizens to improve their nutritional health decisions.
It is a project funded by the EIT Food consortium and coordinated by IMDEA Food Institute.
The main objective of this project is empowering citizens with risk factors for developing non-communicable diseases (NCDs), particularly people living with overweight or obesity, by raising awareness about the importance of taking care of our own body microbiota.
We created 5 infographics that were included in the Photo Book for the project. They try to visually explain different and important topics about our microbiota, such as Disbiosis, Bifidobacterium, the relation between Nutrition and Microbiota, Short-chain fatty acids and Microbiota and Obesity and metabolic diseases.
These infographics have been displayed in few exhibitions in Zaragoza, Spain.
The outcome of the Project was compiled in the Photo Book "Picture your Microbes" that can be found here.
