CURRENT RESEARCH ON THE HUMAN MICROBIOME (SC 209). Class presentations available for viewing.

Humans evolved in the presence of dynamic microbial and viral communities that constantly inhabit our bodies, including their unique genes and metabolism. Dr. Katrine Whiteson’s lab at UCI strives to understand how this microbiome, whose collective cells outnumber those of their human host, affects our health from bacterial infection to vaccination to immune development. Dr. Whiteson and her lab personnel will present current research projects on healthy humans, premature infants from Children’s Hospital of Orange County, and cystic fibrosis patients.
