Leveraging Campus Strengths

Chancellor Pradeep K. Khosla announces the launch of the UC San Diego Microbiome and Microbial Sciences Initiative.  It is a concerted research and education effort that will leverage the university’s strengths in science, medicine, engineering and the humanities to produce a detailed understanding of microbiomes — distinct constellations of bacteria, viruses and other microorganisms that live within and around us — and methods for manipulating them for the benefit of human health and the environment. The video also features initiative leaders Rob Knight, PhD, and Kit Pogliano, PhD.
