Microbial Characterization of Combat-Patient Wounds to Improve Healing

Nicholas Be | 17-ERD-031

Executive Summary

We are combining advanced capabilities in gene sequencing, protein detection, and bioinformatics analysis with computational expertise in network modeling to develop a comprehensive portrait of combat wounds and methods for improving care. Our data will be integrated in a first-of-its-kind network model that will profile the interaction of microbial and human factors and their impact on healing.
