Beiting, PhD

University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine

Daniel Beiting is an Assistant Professor of Pathobiology at the School of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, PA. His research combines immunology, microbiology and genomics to understand how factors such as diet and infection alter the complex microbial ecosystem in the gut, and how these factors impact inflammation and disease. He is particularly interested in data-driven approaches, which led him to develop web-based, interactive data mining tools to explore complex clinical microbiology datasets from human, animal and environmental studies.

Dr. Beiting is also the Technical Director of the Center for Host-Microbial Interactions at PennVet, where he helps coordinate interdisciplinary research projects, directs educational initiatives and partners with local biotech companies to advance human and animal health. Dr. Beiting received his PhD from the Cornell University, and subsequently completed a post-doctoral fellowship at UPenn, before joining the faculty at PennVet.
