Dr. Julia Oh is an assistant professor at the Jackson Laboratory for Genome Medicine. She has significant training in genomics, genetics, and technology development, completing postdoctoral training at the National Human Genome Research Institute, her Ph.D. in genetics at Stanford University under renowned geneticist and technologist Ronald Davis, and her B.A. from Harvard University at the FAS Center for Systems Biology.
Her primary research interests focus on using genomic technologies and synthetic biology to explore and engineer the human microbiome–the communities of bacteria, viruses, and fungi that inhabit all areas of the human body and play an integral role in human health.
As the keynote speaker for the Microbiome Session, Julia will describe The host, its microbes, and disease: the landscape of the human skin microbiome.
