The Walk Lab studies microbes of human importance. We have projects ranging from how pathogens circulate in hospitals to how microbial communities improve human health. We also study how environmental factors influence human-microbe interactions and how host-associated microbes transition between hosts. We broadly develop and apply theories of microbial ecology and evolution to help improve human and animal health and decrease disease.

We are lucky to be part of the Department of Microbiology & Immunology at Montana State University, located in the beautiful Gallatin Valley in Bozeman, Montana.
