The Dishaw Lab at the University of South Florida is interested in how exogenous factors and secreted immune effectors shape the ecology of gut microbiomes. Our research includes understanding the developmental ontogeny of human microbiomes and investigating gut host-microbe interactions with the 'simple' chordate model system, Ciona robusta.
