Snehal Nariya B.S

Graduate Student

 

 

University of Washington BS in Cellular and Molecular Biology. I joined Dr. Yvonne Huang and Dr. Homer Boushey's team at UCSF in 2011. At UCSF, I worked under the guidance of Dr. Huang on several projects: AsthmaNet Microbiome, BOBCAT (Bronchoscopic Exploratory Research Study of Biomarkers in Corticosteroid-refractory Asthma), and airway microbiome pathogenesis in COPD exacerbations.  I accepted Dr. Huang’s invitation to join her in her new position at the University of Michigan and continued our work on how respiratory microbiota might shape outcomes in airway diseases such as asthma. At UMICH, I helped step-up the new lab and studied the possible microbial etiologies of resistance to inhaled corticosteroids treatments.Currently, I am a microbiology master's student at San Diego State University. My thesis research focuses of constructing methanotrophic cells capable of intracellular oxygen production
