Daniel Beiting :: Assistant Professor; Technical Director
I am an immunologist using 'omics approaches to interrogate the host-pathogen interface.
Shuai Wang :: Visiting Scholar
My research employs genome sequencing and comparative genomic methods to explore the biology, evolution and host-parasite interface of some medically important parasites. My current study focuses on interactions between host intestinal microbiome and the parasite Toxoplasma gondii
Megan Sullivan :: Research Specialist
In addition to general lab management, I work with investigators to plan, develop and manage high-throughput sequencing projects, ranging from transcriptome studies, single-cell seq, 16S rRNA profiling and shotgun metagenomics.
Camila Farias Amorim :: Postdoctoral researcher
My interests center mainly around using high-throughput sequencing to study the human immune response during cutaneous leishmaniasis.
Ayah El-Fahmawi :: Undergraduate researcher
I am a senior studying biology at UPenn and I've been working to elucidate the mechanisms by which intestinal inflammation leads to dysbiosis and severe disease
Alex Berry :: Postdoctoral researcher
I am interested in using population genetic and phylogenetic approaches to understand how parasites affect the microbiome.
