Our objective is to contribute new scientific knowledge through mentorship of researchers broadly interested in food's role in health and wellness. Our research activities often rely on sequence-based approaches employed to investigate the genomics and ecology of commensal microorganisms. Moreover, we are determined to characterize mechanistic linkages with health emanating from host-microbial interactions.
