Dr. Hao Guo

Dr. Hao Guo (Assistant Professor, Genetics) has been awarded a four-year subcontract associated with a U19 grant at Columbia University titled “Center for High-Throughput Minimally-Invasive Radiation Biodosimetry” (David Brenner PI).

Dr. Guo’s project “Mechanisms of radioprotection by microbiota metabolites” will identify which cell types and metabolites receptors play the essential role in mediating the radioprotection by SCFA or tryptophan metabolites and confirming whether this function is controlled by the gut microbiota in the radiation model.
