Welcome to the Theriot Lab at NCSU.

We work at the interface of gastrointestinal microbiology, metabolomics, and infectious diseases.

Our lab is part of the Department of Population Health and Pathobiology at the College of Veterinary Medicine.

Our current research portfolio focuses on a major public health problem – Clostridium difficile infection (CDI). CDI is the leading nosocomial infection in the United States, affecting over 500,000 Americans and killing around 30,000 each year.

We apply cutting-edge technology and high-throughput methods to analyze the gut microbiome and metabolome using a range of experimental techniques and animal models of CDI.

Our aim is to build knowledge that will aid in the design of targeted bacterial approaches to prevent and treat gastrointestinal diseases – improving clinical outcomes.
