Content

Our faculty are highly collaborative, with diverse projects that include microbial ecology and model systems, immunology, cell biology, genetics and genomics, metabolomics, epidemiology, and systems engineering.

As microbiome research matures, it is leading to a major reassessment of biological processes within the human body. Our laboratories are focused in understanding the important microbial-host interactions and the opportunity for clinical interventions to control human health.
