Welcome to the Jost Lab!


About Us

We decode the molecular language of host-microbiome communication using systematic CRISPR technologies and chemically defined in vitro and in vivo experiments. Our goal is to define causal contributions of the microbiome to basic human biology and to provide mechanistic insight into the pathophysiology of human diseases including diabetes and inflammatory disorders to lay the groundwork for the development of microbiome-based therapeutics. Learn more about our research here and about our mission and values here!

We are a new lab (April 2021) in the Department of Microbiology at Harvard Medical School, located on the Longwood Campus. Follow news and updates from us here!
