About Metabiota

Metabiota is a global leader in pandemic threat management, mitigation and preparedness.  Its focus is on strengthening the global immune system through worldwide engagement and impactful science. 
Metabiota leverages health, science and data analytics to help governments, international organizations, and industry gain actionable insights into human and animal health, quantifying and helping to manage these risks.
Founded in 2008, the company operates in 20 countries with offices in San Francisco, Washington, China, Canada, and Sierra Leone.

What We Do

Metabiota aims to assess and investigate infectious disease threats through pathogen discovery, disease detection, and threat characterization.

Our pioneering science begins in viral hot spots where we conduct endemic and epidemic outbreak investigations.

We work with individuals, organizations and partners to help assess, investigate, and provide strategies to prevent the spread of infectious disease.

Why We Do It

Emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases pose a growing threat to global health. 

An increasingly interconnected world heightens the risk of disease emergence, transmission from animals into human populations, and from one person to another. 

Protecting global health requires a strong network to gather data, assess risks, investigate threats, and influence positive change.

How We Do It

We are passionately committed to the mitigation of infectious disease outbreaks in numerous locations throughout the world.

Our local and global presence provides us with access to the most robust international human network and a perspective that is unique to Metabiota. 

We combine creative agility and a meticulous process to fuel rapid, relevant, and sustainable solutions to help control and stop the spread of disease.

Mission & Vision

Metabiota is a microbiological term referring to a stable relationship between a group
of hosts and the various microbes that inhabit them. 

Our name reflects our mission and inspires our vision. We endeavor to reduce 
and prevent global infectious disease threats by creating stable and strong 
relationships locally, at the source where diseases start. We provide the 
framework to efficiently and effectively identify, analyze, and investigate global 
health threats.
