Speaker Profile

About the Quinn Lab:

The Quinn lab at Michigan State University aims to understand how dynamic microbial communities contribute to health and disease. We use multi-omics methods, such as metagenomics and metabolomics, supported by animal and laboratory models, to peer into various microbiomes and elucidate their function. We focus our research on the cystic fibrosis (CF) lung, human gut, and marine systems. We are particularly interested in characterizing the chemistry of the microbiome. To do this, our laboratory uses advanced mass spectrometry bioinformatic tools to illuminate the ‘dark matter’ in the microbial metabolome.
