Infectious disease remains the leading cause of death globally and the third leading cause of death in the United States. Peter White, Ph.D. is helping to change that. As the Director of Biomedical Genomics Core and principal investigator in the Center for Microbial Pathogenesis in The Research Institute, Peter and his team use state-of-the-art genome sequencing technology to investigate and understand disease. This research is helping investigators find new ways to diagnose, treat many forms of disease, including infectious diseases and immune disorders.
