Our group uses cutting-edge metabolomics technologies to explore the interaction between hosts, microbes and the environment.  A major focus of our lab is chemical cartography, the study of chemical interactions in 3D.  This novel approach allows us to answer major questions about microbiome function, pathogen tropism, pathogen drug sensitivity, host physiology and the exposome.  We then integrate this information into a bench-to-bedside framework, with a focus on the development of new treatments for diseases neglected by the pharmaceutical industry.

We are actively recruiting interested graduate students.  Please contact Dr. McCall at lmccall@ou.edu for more information.
