Stephanie Servetas (Fed)


Stephanie Servetas joined the Complex Microbial Systems Group in 2018 working with Sam Forry. During her work in the Microbiology and Immunology Department at Uniformed Services University, she concentrated on the gastric pathogen Helicobacter pylori, with a specific focus on gene regulation and biofilm development.

It is an exciting time to be a microbiologist as microbes are no longer cast only as a villain but are increasingly being recognized for their beneficial roles. Scientists are trying to harness these favorable attributes to improve human health, agriculture, and energy production to name a few examples. Stephanie’s research focuses on the development of laboratory grown, reproducible, microbial communities that can serve as tools for the development of next generation sequencing based diagnostics, pathogen detection, and microbial therapeutics (bugs-as-drugs).
