body odor bacteria Armpit
Project description

The aim of the project is to obtain a thorough understanding of body odor development and to find solutions against it. A bacterial transplantation in the armpit was proposed as alternative and possible lasting solution. This project will further fine-tune the transplantation technique. Many optimizations will be verified and focus on the steering towards a good & nonodorous axillary microbiome.
