We spotlight the importance of hand
hygiene to improve public health, serve as a trusted
resource and raise awareness of leading-edge hand
hygiene and skin health scientific advancements through the GOJO Hand Hygiene Blog.
GOJO microbiologists, scientists,
nurses and communication professionals post regularly
and we also get the views of outside experts and
thought leaders in the field. It’s all part of the
GOJO Purpose, saving lives and making lives better
through well-being solutions.
Julia Oh, Ph.D.
Assistant Professor at the Jackson Laboratory for Genomic Medicine
Dr. Oh is an Assistant Professor at the Jackson Laboratory for Genomic Medicine. Previously, she completed postdoctoral training at the National Institutes of Health, her Ph.D. in genetics at Stanford University, and her B.A. from Harvard University at the FAS Center for Systems Biology. Her primary research interests focus on using genomic technologies and synthetic biology to explore and engineer the human microbiome--the communities of bacteria, viruses, and fungi that inhabit all areas of the human body and play an integral role in human health. The unifying goal of her laboratory is to understand how microbiota interact with their human host to cause disease, and subsequently to develop microbiome-centric treatment and preventative strategies.
