Research

Research Summary: 

The Fredricks Lab studies the human microbiome and how microbial communities on mucosal surfaces impact health.  We use molecular and cultivation approaches to study the ecology of human microbial communities with a focus on the reproductive tract and sexually transmitted diseases.  We also study the role of the microbiome in complications after hematopoietic cell transplantation.   We develop nucleic acid sequence-based methods for discovering novel pathogens linked to human disease.
