Ann Gregory is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Calgary. She began her research career studying viral community structure and function across the global oceans and has since expanded her work to study viral communities across the human body. In December 2018, Dr. Gregory earned her PhD from Ohio State University, followed by a EMBO postdoctoral fellowship at KU Leuven in Belgium. After completing her fellowship, she delved into the biotech industry, serving as a computational biologist at the gene therapy company, Aera Therapeutics. As of January 2024, Dr. Gregory has returned to academia, founding the fledgling Integrative Viromics Lab at the University of Calgary. Her fledgling lab is dedicated to studying viral communities across diverse ecosystems, but with a focus on the human virome.

Annie Nguyen

Annie earned her MSc degree in Veterinary Medicine from the University of Calgary in 2023, where she conducted research in the Niu lab. Transitioning to the Gregory lab in February 2024, she brings a strong passion for phage and bacteria interaction, phage therapy, and healthcare innovation. Presently, her research focuses on gut phage isolation, alongside her contributions to the lab's daily operations. Committed to mentorship and well-being, Annie aims to foster a supportive and well-organized environment to minimize stress levels in graduate life.
