Interindividual variation in metabolic response to the environment
The Poole Lab studies the variability in people’s response to the environment and how their genes and microbiota may mediate the effects. For example, we want to know why individuals respond differently to the same dietary intervention. Our resources include, but are not limited to, a human metabolic research unity to help facilitate running studies with human participants, a mouse facility and experience running germ-free mouse experiments, and a technology core for sequencing of all kinds. We would love to host a postdoctoral fellow with experience in studying physiology using mouse models, bioinformatics, computational biology, or microbial anaerobes. Prior firsthand experience accompanied by a publication record are required.
