We are trying to establish the association between the Human Microbiome, chronic inflammation, metabolism and carcinogenesis. We use metabolomics, microbiome, and metagenomics sequencing methods to follow the functional genomics and relative abundance of microbes in a community over time. These microbial communities’ exhibit rich ecological dynamics and our goal is to understand how microbes interact with host to promote metabolic health.
