Dr. Scaria conducts research in the areas of enteric diseases, role of prebiotics and probiotics in gut health, and the development of Next Generation sequencing (NGS) based diagnostic tools for pathogen detection. His primary research interest is to understand the mechanisms by which commensal gut bacteria provide colonization resistance against pathogens such as Clostridium difficile and Salmonella enterica. Current research efforts also includes transnational studies to control enteric infections using prebiotics and probiotics. A secondary focus of his research is the use of NGS for foodborne pathogen tracking and detection
