About

The Ishaq Lab will be establishing this fall at the University of Maine, Orono in the Department of Animal and Veterinary Sciences! Dr. Sue Ishaq, Principal Investigator, is an incoming Assistant Professor of animal microbiome studies.

We will focus on the gut microbiome of animals, and particularly in ruminants, both wild and domestic. As we get up an running, we’ll be rolling out updates to the website and information on our work.

The Ishaq Lab philosophy is that researchers have an obligation to share and disseminate the results of their work, and to engage both the general public and the specific groups that may benefit from those findings.  As such, this site will strive to create a connection between science and, well, you!  Microbiology is for sharing! And so is molecular genetics, and bioinformatics, and astrophysics…
