We seek to leverage the human microbiota as a therapeutic target of the future. We approach this ambitious goal from two opposing directions: on the one end, we utilize massive datasets to detect temporal associations between the gut microbiota and the body, with particular emphasis on immune homeostasis; on the other end, we are developing fundamental theory of host-microbiota evolution and ecology. Theory and large-scale data analysis inform our microbiota community experiments, focusing on anaerobic cultivation techniques, that ultimately lead to interventional trials of microbiota-targeted therapies. Specifically, we are leveraging the arsenal of microbial warfare to control complex microbial ecosystems.
