The goal of the project’s research is to test the hypothesis that arsenic exposure in water and food, relevant to the US population, causes disease by disrupting the innate immune response of the lungs to infection by Pseudomonas aeruginosa. This project has been focused on a major theme of the program—the effects of arsenic on human disease. In the last year, the research team developed several novel computational and bioinformatics approaches to interrogate big data sets.
