Welcome to the Holtz lab!

Work in our lab focuses on the integrated use of epidemiology, bioinformatics, and molecular virology to address questions in the developing childhood gut. 

Our overarching questions:

How does the community of viruses in the infant gut develop?

What is the role of the infant gut virome and bacterial microbiome in the development of disease?

How can we improve our understanding of celiac disease in order to ultimately improve the lives of our patients with celiac disease?
