The Duchossois Family Institute
The Duchossois Family Institute (DFI) at the University of Chicago Medicine seeks to promote wellness through groundbreaking science on the immune system, genetics, the microbiome, and their shared environments. Introducing a “new science of wellness,” the DFI aims to maximize good health and the economic, social, and personal benefits it delivers.
The DFI allows scientists to work in ways they haven't been able to before. It blends hard science and research, big data analysis, and commercialization of products to help people get healthy and stay healthy.
