Elizabeth Grice to join MVP Faculty
Elizabeth Grice, currently a post-doctoral fellow at the
National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) of the NIH,
will join the Penn faculty in January 2012 as assistant professor
in the Department of Dermatology. Dr. Grice received
her Ph.D. in human genetics from Johns Hopkins University
School of Medicine. Her post-doctoral research with
Dr. Julia Segre at NHGRI examined the diversity of the skin
microbiome. Dr. Grice’s present and future research
investigates the contribution of the microbiome and the closely
associated skin defense response to impaired cutaneous wound
Some of her relevant papers are listed below:
