This week we’ve left the sunny Portuguese coast behind us and arrived in the ‘City of Lights’, Paris. The capital city of France is famous for the Eiffel Tower, fashion and cuisine but what you may not know it is home to Enterome Bioscience, a pioneer in personalized therapies that focus on microbiome related diseases.
