Lab Description

The Knight lab has broad interests in the human microbiome, the collection of trillions of microbes that inhabits our bodies, especially in developing techniques to read out these complex microbial communities and use the resulting data to understand human health, links between humans and the environment, and to prevent and cure disease. We offer a fast-paced environment with many collaborative opportunities on different projects.
