Lead Faculty/Staff or PI

Dr. Dustin-Bosch


Bosch Lab, Department of Pathology

Project details

The Bosch lab studies how bacteria interact in the gut microbiome in healthy people, and in the context of gastrointestinal diseases such as inflammatory bowel disease, colorectal cancer, and pancreatic cancer. Our long term goal is to identify and target interbacterial responses important for human disease. We apply a broad range of techniques including metagenomic sequencing, proteomics, bacteriology, genetics, and structural biology. Please see our website for details and ongoing projects.

Undergraduate volunteers in the lab will participate in an ongoing research project, learn and perform basic science research techniques, and record and interpret experiment results. Starting volunteers will work closely with a more senior lab member and transition to independence with experience. All volunteers meet with the PI 1:1 weekly, and if class schedule allows, participate in monthly lab meetings. There are opportunities for collaboration with other laboratories and to present work at local events.
