I am always looking for qualified graduate students. If you are interested in joining the Nutrition and Gut Microbiome Lab, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I welcome applications from individuals who plan to enter with their own research plans. However, I also have a few specific opportunities and projects available for highly-motivated students interested in the following areas:
SOIL TO SOCIETY (S2S)
A highly interdisciplinary theme established between the Department of Nutrition and the Department of Crop and Soil Sciences. As such, projects will aim to connect the different ecosystems between agricultural soil to human nutrition through the prism of the microbiome.
IMPACT OF CANCER TREATMENT ON THE GUT MICROBIOME
I anticipate an opportunity for a research project in collaboration with clinicians to determine the impact of colorectal cancer treatment on the gut microbiome. The longer term goal being to design preventative dietary strategies to limit detrimental gastro-intestinal side-effect and/or to improve the efficiency of innovative treatments such as immunotherapy.
