Susan Holmes receives NIH Transformative Research Award

Professor Holmes and David Relman, MD, together received a Transformative Research Award from the National Institutes of Health on September 30, 2013. “These awards recognize and support the kind of creative thinking that has put Stanford on the map as the epicenter of innovation,” said Lloyd Minor, MD, dean of the School of Medicine. The team will use their $6.2 million in funding to examine the effects of perturbations in humans’ microbial ecology.
