Sujatha Srinivasan, PhD, Vaccine and Infectious Disease Division, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Seattle, WA

Sujatha Srinivasan is a Senior Staff Scientist in the Vaccine and Infectious Disease Division at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Seattle. She is the Associate Director of the Microbiome Core of the NIH-funded University of Washington-Fred Hutch Sexually Transmitted Infections Cooperative Research Center, that is investigating the interactions between the genital tract microbiome and syndromes and pathogens that contribute to STI-related morbidity. Dr. Srinivasan received her PhD in Microbiology from the University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia. Her thesis examined adaptation of marine Vibrio to starvation and stress. Her background spans environmental microbiology, computational biology and human microbiology. She is interested in how bacterial interactions in human microbial communities impact human health and disease. She has developed molecular, omics and in vitro cultivation methods to study the human microbiome, and has successfully applied these methods to study the reproductive tract microbiome.
