GGSB Symposium

Committee on Genetics, Genomics and Systems Biology

The Committee on Genetics, Genomics and Systems Biology (GGSB) is an interdisciplinary PhD granting program that brings together over 70 biologists from many academic departments. The GGSB program is aimed at training PhD scholars for careers as independent scientists in basic and applied biomedical research and education.

 My lab studies the genomics of host-microbiome interactions. We use genomics technologies and employ computational, statistical, machine learning, and population genetic analytical approaches to understand how host-microbe interactions change in health and disease. I am excited to be part of the GGSB community at UChicago -- I feel that my lab is a great fit with the program's focus on both functional and computational genomics, the interdisciplinary nature of the program, and the breadth of research interests, and I always look forward to working with GGSB students!
