Connecting Climate Change to our gut.
Doing better in the EDI space.
Did we learn from the pandemic?
We caught up with Dr. Carolina Tropini on all this and more in our latest episode.
Assistant Professor, SBME & Dept. of Microbiology and Immunology
Dr. Tropini’s interests lie at the nexus of medicine, microbial biophysics, and engineering. Working in the field of the gut microbiota, she is applying novel tools to longstanding questions regarding the stability of microbial communities and their response to perturbations during disease. By combining imaging, microfluidics and computational techniques to animal studies, she is building a comprehensive and quantitative understanding of the complex interactions between microbes and their hosts. Dr. Tropini is also keenly interested in teaching and outreach, particularly with the goal of building a common language between physicists and engineers, biologists and clinicians.
