"host-microbe interactions to ecosystems"



There is tremendous potential in microbiome research.  It could revolutionize the way we treat health conditions, practice agriculture, and deal with ecological and environmental issues. Oklahoma State University (OSU) has interdisciplinary strength and critical capabilities, including specialized facilities for research in all of these areas. Many other national programs at larger institutions focus more narrowly, particularly on human health.  The potential at OSU is to develop research initiatives at the nexus points between health, food, energy, water, and materials and manufacturing.  Our focus is to establish and foster a well-supported infrastructure for competitive research activity in Microbiome Science through inter- and intra-institutional relationships, excellence in student training, the use of cutting-edge technology platforms, and engagement of the existing OSU research community.
