Welcome to the Grice Laboratory in the Department of Dermatology at the University of Pennsylvania! Our research integrates genomics, microbiology, dermatology, and immunology to examine host-microbe interactions of the skin in health and disease. We are an interdisciplinary and highly collaborative team of post-doctoral fellows, graduate students, and technical staff.
We invite you to explore our web site to learn more about our research program and its members.
