Our interest is to use systems approaches to better understand host-microbiome-pathogen interactions and microbial pathogenesis. The goal is to uncover underlying molecular mechanisms of microbial pathogenesis and to identify targets of intervention as well as biomarkers for clinical applications. We focus on computational analysis of high-throughput omics data in combination with targeted experimental validation.

The Lab is housed in the College of Veterinary Medicine Research Building located at the NC State Biomedical Centennial Campus, and is part of NC State Bioinformatics Research Center (BRC, brc.ncsu.edu).
