Daniel Beiting :: Assistant Professor; Technical Director
I am an immunologist using 'omics approaches to interrogate the host-pathogen interface.
Ana M. Misic :: Post-doctoral Scientist
My research uses DNA sequencing technologies (Illumina, PacBio, Oxford Nanopore) to answer questions about bacteria that are important to human and animal health. My research interests include human and animal pathogens, antimicrobial resistance, and horizontal gene transfer. My favorite bacteria are Staphylococcus schleiferi and Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
Ayah El-Fahmawi :: Undergraduate researcher
I am a freshman studying biology at UPenn who is excited to learn more about research, microbiology, and bioinformatics while gaining lab experience. My project in the lab is focused on understanding the mechanisms by which intestinal inflammation leads to dysbiosis and severe disease
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
Francislon Silva Oliveira :: Ph.D. student; Brazilian 'sandwich' program
Bioinformatics developer and passionate about science. My current research is focused on exploring the microbiome world through new data visualization analysis tools.
Megan Sullivan :: Research Specialist
Camila Farias Amorim :: Ph.D. student; Brazilian 'sandwich' program
I am nearing the end of my Ph.D in Biomedical Sciences and Immunology in Brazil. My interests center mainly around the study of the host immune response in individuals infected with the parasite, Leishmania sp
