Jeff Letourneau joins the David Lab! He’s a PhD student in the Molecular Genetics and Microbiology (MGM) program interested in how bacteria interact with each other and their host.

In the David lab, he studies how bacteria metabolize dietary fiber and how changes in the gut microbiome can predispose an individual to disease. Outside of lab, he enjoys baking bread, hiking, rock climbing, sewing, and writing.
