Graduate Students

Ariel Hernandez Leyva    MSTP Student   Computational & Systems Biology  a.hernandez-leyva[at]wustl.edu  Ariel is interested in the molecular mechanisms that regulate the interactions between commensal microbes and the host. He hopes to use our understanding of these interactions to design novel medical therapies that modulate the immune system and microbiome in disease.
