TGen North advances public health, clinical medicine and biodefense through targeted and global microbial genomics. Our faculty and staff value the opportunity to share our research with the great Flagstaff community through laboratory tours. To learn more, or sign up for a tour, please click here.
We apply advanced laboratory and computer technology to explore the human microbiome, the next frontier in our understanding of the relationship of microbes to human health and disease.
We view the larger health problems of our time through a comprehensive approach to humans, animals and the environment, through the application of next generation technology and knowledge.
We partner with health-care providers to characterize and track critical pathogens in hospitals and clinics, with a particular focus on the continual advancement of antibiotic resistance, allowing physicians to provide personalized therapy and prevent outbreaks.
Through sequencing technology, we are finding more accurate diagnoses and treatments for this pathogen that affects one-third of the world population.
From strep to influenza to rare fungal infections, we have developed advanced capabilities to assist public health and healthcare officials investigating disease outbreaks in our backyard and around the world.
TGen North and Northern Arizona University work to support America’s biosecurity and protection from pathogens such as anthrax and plague, by collaborating with law enforcement, public health, military and intelligence communities.
