Noah W. Palm, Ph.D., is an Assistant Professor of Immunobiology at Yale University School of Medicine, where his lab focuses on understanding how the trillions of microbes that live in and on us interact with and influence their mammalian hosts. His work particularly emphasizes the development of new technologies to deconvolute complex host-microbiota interactions and reveal causal and mechanistic roles for the microbiota in human health and disease. Dr. Palm is the recipient of multiple honors and awards, including a Smith Family Foundation Award for Excellence in Biomedical Research, Pew Biomedical Scholar Award and NIH Director’s New Innovator Award. He received his B.A. in Biology from Macalester College and performed his doctoral work with Dr. Ruslan Medzhitov and postdoctoral studies with Dr. Richard Flavell at Yale University.
