Faculty Bio

The Petrof lab is interested in the study of commensal bacteria, probiotics and the microbiome, with a particular interest in C.difficile infection. These investigations will ultimately result in a better understanding of the protective role of commensal gut flora under conditions of inflammation and stress, and lead to novel microbe-based treatment modalities for the management of intestinal diseases.
