Microbiome: friend and foe

Wednesday, April 3, 2019 - 3:00pm to 4:00pm

Speaker

Julie Segre, Ph.D.
Senior Investigator
National Human Genome Research Institute

Summary

Dr. Segre’s research at NHGRI explores human skin bacterial, fungal and viral communities, enabling studies of alterations associated with pediatric atopic dermatitis, primary immunodeficiency and emerging pathogens. Dr. Segre’s research also focuses on integrating whole genome sequencing of hospital pathogens to track possible nosocomial transmissions. These studies integrate DNA sequence technology, algorithm development and clinical studies to explore the diversity of microbes in and on humans in health and disease.
