Elhanan Borenstein, assistant professor of Genome Sciences and adjunct assistant professor in CSE, has been recognized in the NIH “High Risk High Rewards” program.

According to NIH Director Francis Collins, the High Risk High Reward program “provides opportunities for innovative investigators in any area of health research to take risks when the potential impact in biomedical and behavioral sciences is high.”

Borenstein researches the human microbiome – the complex ensemble of microorganisms that populate the human body.  Borenstein and his team are building a comprehensive computational toolkit for designing microbiome manipulations and for discovering possible routes for microbiome-based therapy.
