Predicting microbiome susceptibility to infection

We are actively collaborating with Regina LaRocque (Massachusetts General Hospital) and Firdausi Qadri (the International Center for Diarrheal Disease and Research, Bangladesh) to longitudinally study cholera infections among the residents of Dhaka, Bangladesh. Using a cohort of families at high risk of cholera transmission, we are studying the microbiota factors affecting individual susceptibility to cholera.
