Postdoctoral Fellow


Dr. Travis De Wolfe is a Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research funded Postdoctoral Fellow with the Department of Pediatrics where his research interests include Clostridioides difficile infections, inflammatory bowel diseases, colonization resistance, host-microbe interactions, and ecology of the gut microbiome. Before joining the University of British Columbia he was awarded a National Institutes of Health Postdoctoral Traineeship through the Department of Biomedical Informatics at the University of Pittsburgh to work on optimization of high-throughput workflows for microbiome data collection and bioinformatic analysis. His goal as a health researcher is to use translational science and biomedical informatics to better understand the role of the gut microbiome in supporting human health.
