We are pleased to announce that Dr. Leah Guthrie will be joining the faculty of UC Berkeley Bioengineering starting January 1, 2024! Dr. Guthrie received a BA in Biology from Swarthmore College and a PhD in Biomedical Sciences from Albert Einstein College of Medicine. She is currently a HHMI Hanna Gray postdoctoral fellow at Stanford University. In her research, she aims to elucidate the mechanisms by which gut bacterial metabolites contribute to differences in disease outcomes by modulating host cellular processes, contributing to a better understanding of the influence of gut microorganisms on human health and disease.
Welcome Dr. Guthrie!
