The Chief Science Officers primary role is to plan, coordinate, and conduct basic and applied research to advance the understanding of the role of the vaginal microbiome on overall health and translate that research into publications, products, and protocols that improve womens lives.

**Background on Company and Role**

The health of the vaginal biome is widely and increasingly thought by the research and medical communities to, not unlike the gut biome, serve as a significant determinant of womens behavioral, emotional, and physical health. This developing consensus has spurred significant growth and investment in research to better understand the vaginal biome, its fungibility and impact on womens health in the pursuit of products, treatments, and solutions in what has historically and largely been a poorly understood and underserved population.

Since its first vaginal microbiome patent in 2012, the company has continued to lead the search to better understand the vaginal biome and its role in womens vaginal health. To build and expand its research efforts, they created a non-profit, Sexual Health and Wellness Institute, and a research focused subsidiary, Vaginal Biome Science. In this role, you will be a key member of the Vaginal Biome Science leadership team and a key partner for Sexual Health and Wellness Institute.

Current research studies and clinical trials are focused on the role of the vaginal microbiome and treatment of bacterial vaginosis, oncology/palliative care, pessary use, and arousal. Additionally, our work is exploring the link between vaginal microbiome and gut microbiome and other inflammatory markers within the body.
