Talk Title: Causes and consequences of human microbiome composition


The Center for Genetic Epidemiology is hosting a virtual seminar with Emily R. Davenport, Ph.D (, Assistant Professor in the Department of Biology at Penn State University. Dr. Davenport has been leading the Davenport Lab since 2019, where she studies the the relationship between humans and the gut microbiome and the role they play in human health and evolution. Dr. Davenport holds a Bachelor of Science degree with comprehensive honors in Bacteriology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She became familiar with genomic techniques while working at the microarray company Roche NimbleGen from 2007 to 2009. Dr. Davenport also holds a PhD in Human Genetics from The University of Chicago where she merged her interests in bacterial and eukaryotic genomics. She continued to explore the role between host genetics, the microbiome, and phenotype during her time as a postdoc at Cornell University from 2014 to 2019, which included a year as a visiting postdoc at the Max Planck Institute for Developmental Biology.
