mSphere. 2020 Sep 30;5(5):e00944-20. doi: 10.1128/mSphere.00944-20.


Ariangela J. Kozik studies the respiratory microbiome as it relates to asthma. In this mSphere of Influence article, she reflects on how two papers, “Time’s up to adopt a biopsychosocial model to address racial and ethnic disparities in asthma outcomes” (E. C. Matsui, A. S. Adamson, and R. D. Peng, Allergy Clin Immunol 143:2024-2025, 2019, and “Health disparities and the microbiome” (K. Findley, D. R. Williams, E. A. Grice, and V. L. Bonham, Trends Microbiol 24:847-850, 2016,, shape her approach to human microbiome research.
