You're not alone when you when you have a microbiome!

Here at the Currie lab we are very excited to work on our new project, “The Human Microbiome in Health and Disease”, funded by the the University of Wisconsin's UW2020 initiative . Through this research, we plan to leverage samples collected from large cohort studies, including the Children's Respiratory Research (CREW) and the Wisconsin Longitudinal Study (WLS) with the University of Wisconsin Madison's growing gnotobiotic animal facility to detect new biomarkers of diseases ranging from autism to Alzheimer's and develop novel drug leads.
