Ecological communities are very complex systems comprising species that interact with each other in spatially extensive settings. Understanding the rules that govern these systems and how they behave in time is fundamental, but it is also of practical importance since it concerns the maintenance of biodiversity in the face of global change.

The respiratory microbiome is topographically distinct from that of the intestinal tract. Mounting evidence implicates microbial communities from both systems as likely modifiers of disease phenotype in asthma and COPD: the two most globally prevalent, yet heterogeneous, airway diseases. Over the past decade the Huang lab has co-led several clinical translational studies that have aimed to understand the links between airway and gut microbiota, and biological and clinical features of these diseases.
