Since 2015, BiomX has been discovering and developing innovative microbiome-based therapeutics to prevent and treat cancer, IBD, and skin disorders that stem from microbiome dysbiosis. The Company’s microbiome modulation platform uses cutting-edge science, research, and licensed technology created by its founders, Professor Rotem Sorek, Ph.D., and Dr. Eran Elinav, M.D./Ph.D., both of The Weizmann Institute of Science; and Professor Timothy K.
