Meet Our Researchers


Two Irish Microbiologists Find Their Way, Together, to Seattle

In April, Dr. Susan Bullman and her husband, Dr. Christopher Johnston, each joined the Fred Hutch faculty. Since then, they have been staffing and stocking their own microbiology labs. With different areas of expertise, each is a leader in research on the human microbiota, the trillions of bacteria that inhabit our mouths, our gut and just about every square inch of our bodies.

Dr. Heather Greenlee speaking at a lectern

The first time Dr. Heather Greenlee personally came in contact with cancer, she was in high school. The patient was her stepfather, a physician. The diagnosis was glioblastoma, an aggressive type of brain tumor. Greenlee was 17 when he was diagnosed, and she never forgot what it felt like to see someone she cared about suffer from cancer.
