Julie Segre, National Human Genome Research Institute, NIH, USA
Julie Segre, Ph. D. is a Senior Investigator at the National Human Genome Research Institute, NIH. Her research focuses on microbial genomics, investigating both the diversity of human skin organisms and hospital pathogens. Segre’s research integrates high throughput sequence analysis with clinical study design. Segre’s research has defined the normal human skin bacterial and fungal communities, enabling studies of alterations associated with pediatric atopic dermatitis and primary immunodeficiency. Segre’s research also focused on integrating whole genome sequencing of hospital pathogens both to study nosocomial transmission and to develop a national surveillance network. Segre received the 2013 Service to America Medal, together with NIH Clinical Center epidemiologist Tara Palmore, for deploying genomic sequencing to guide hospital outbreak containment.
