KATIE POLLARD, PH.D.

Pollard studies the microbiome of humans, the microorganisms and viruses we harbor, to determine its role in shaping the health of people and their responses to therapeutic agents. Her laboratory has just released prototype open-source software that quantifies microbial population genetic variation using metagenomics data and will scale it for use by hospitals.
