Timothy Nice, Ph.D., is an assistant professor in the department of molecular microbiology and immiunology. His research focuses on host-microbe interactions in the intestine.
The Nice Lab is interested in identifying virus and host genes that determine the outcome of intestinal infection. Understanding the basic functions of these genes in infection and immunity reveal viral and host strategies for survival. Additionally, the lab is interested in how virus-bacteria interactions between the diverse array of microbes that inhabit our intestine impact microbial persistence and the anti-microbial immune response.Read more
