Genomic characterization of an Infection-associated cancer, Stanford University and Bilharz Research Institute

Pathogenomic evaluation of host and parasite genetic characteristics in squamous cell cancer of the bladder in Northern and Western Africa (a collaboration with Prof. O. Hammam and the Bilharz Research Institute in Giza, Egypt).


Giza, Egypt

Principal Investigator:

Ami Bhatt

Current Research Interests: 
Our lab seeks to exhaustively characterize the dynamics of the microbiota and environmental pathogens in immunocompromised and underserved populations, and to explore how changes in the microbiome are associated with diseases in these populations.

Specifically, our goals and objectives are:
a. To catalog, more completely, the components of the human microbiome in states of health and disease using high-thorughput and relatively unbiased methods such as shotgun DNA sequencing. .
b. To understand if shifts in the microbiome are associated with human disease phenotypes....
