Illuminating Host-Microbiota Interactions in Health and Disease

The Palm lab is a part of the Department of Immunobiology at the Yale School of Medicine located in downtown New Haven, CT. Our overarching goal is to understand how the trillions of microbes that live in and on us (our microbiota) interact with and influence their mammalian hosts. Our work particularly emphasizes the development of new technologies to deconvolute complex host-microbiota communication networks and reveal causal roles for the microbiota in human health and disease.
