  1. Anthony Hay

    The Hay lab uses methods from microbial ecology, physiology, genomics, and genetics to understand how human activities affect microbes in diverse environmental settings. For instance, we study how handling of milk collection kits affects the microbiome of pumped human milk. Students will use genomics to[...]
  2. Dr. Jaehee Kim

    Jaehee Kim

    The Kim Lab focuses on the general fields of population genetics and evolutionary biology. Dr. Kim is interested in computational problems relevant to understanding evolutionary processes and population dynamics, and in development and application of statistical methods for inference from genetic data. In addition to[...]

    Marian Schmidt

    The Schmidt lab focuses on microbial community diversity, metabolic activity, and genome evolution in aquatic environments. Students will gain experience with microbial ecology and computational tools. As an example project, students can characterize the microbial communities in marine sediments associated with oyster beds to understand[...]

    CIHMID/CCFI Joint Symposium

    REGISTER HERE: cornell.ca1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form  CIHMID, and the Cornell Center For Immunology (CCFI) will present a joint research symposium, open to the Cornell community. And despite the uncertainty surrounding Covid, and the Omicron variant specifically, CIHMID and CCFI are confident our joint symposium will be safe, and accessible for all attendees. As of right now our plan is to […]

    We are actively engaged in defining the signals that enable effector T cells to ‘find’ areas of infection and damage within inflamed tissues. We utilize intravital multiphoton microscopy and optogenetic tools to visualize and manipulate effector CD4+ T cells in situ. These approaches have revealed extrinsic[...]
  8. New Call for Postdoctoral Fellows!

    Now accepting applications to the CIHMID Postdoctoral Training Program. Applications are due Sept 10, 2023.

    Kelsi Sandoz

    Research in my lab probes the environmental, structural and physiological basis of bacterial survival. The majority of earth’s microbes exist in a non-growing, surival state, making it important to better understand the mechanisms underpinning this physiological state. We primarily use the environmental zoonotic pathogen, Coxiella burnetii (causative agent[...]
  10. Heather Feaga, Microbiology

    Heather Feaga

    The Feaga Lab uses structural, biochemical, and omics approaches to study bacterial ribosomes. Our research aims to identify new protein factors that interact with ribosomes and that keep protein synthesis running smoothly. Students will use transposon mutagenesis coupled to deep sequencing (Tn-Seq) to identify genes[...]
