DR. SUSAN PERKINS
I am Curator and Professor of Microbial Genomics at the American Museum of Natural History in New York, NY. My research is on malaria parasites and other haemosporidian parasites that use non-human hosts. My lab also investigates the interaction of host microbiomes with parasites.
In addition to my scientific research, I am also active in promoting a better understanding of microbiology via public exhibits, books, blogs, and games. See the "Outreach" tab for more information.
