Welcome to the Harris-Tryon Laboratory in the Department of Dermatology and Immunology
Dr. Harris-Tryon received her Ph.D. degree in Cellular and Molecular Medicine and a medical degree (M.D.) from the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine Medical Scientist Training Program.
Skin is the largest organ in the body and harbors bacteria, fungi, viruses, and parasites on the surface and within skin appendages. Using a range of experimental approaches, we investigate the interactions between skin bacteria and the immune system.
Welcome to the Harris-Tryon lab home page. Our focus is on gaining a greater understanding of how bacteria on the skin surface affect skin health and diseases.
