Seibold Laboratory

Max A. Seibold, Ph.D.

Dr. Seibold received his Bachelors in Chemistry from Southwestern Oklahoma State University and his Ph.D. from the University of California San Francisco (UCSF). He completed his postdoctoral training with Dr. David Schwartz at National Jewish Health in Pulmonary Fibrosis Genetics. Dr. Seibold started his laboratory in 2011 and is now a Professor in the Center for Genes, Environment, and Health & the Department of Pediatrics at NJH. He is Co-Director of the Mucosal Inflammation Program and Director of the Regenerative Medicine and Genome Editing Program at NJH. He is also a Professor at the University of Colorado-AMC in the Division of Pulmonary Sciences and Critical Care in the Department of Medicine. He has a graduate training appointment with the Human Medical Genetics and Genomics Graduate Program at the University of Colorado-AMC .     


Camille Moore, Ph.D.

Associate Professor

Dr. Moore is a biostatistician with expertise in missing data and in the analysis of bulk and single cell RNA-sequencing data. Her current research focuses on developing and evaluating statistical methods for longitudinal studies collecting genetic and genomic data.  Dr. Moore leads the biostatistical analyses on several NIH-funded longitudinal cohort studies to understand the molecular and cellular basis of allergic diseases.  She oversees statistical and bioinformatic analyses in the Seibold Lab.

Katrina Diener

Lab Manager

I joined the Seibold Lab in 2021 as the Lab Manager.  I enjoy being a part of all projects and helping the team where needed.  I specialize in NGS Library Construction and the use of robotics in the lab.


Jamie Everman, Ph.D.

Faculty Scientist

Jamie's projects utilize genetic, proteomic, and molecular biology approaches to investigate the airway epithelium of healthy and asthmatic individuals.  Specifically, she is focused on identifying novel biomarkers of asthma, understanding the biology of rhinovirus infection in the airway, and characterizing the biology of the airway epithelium in deployment-related lung diseases.

Nathan Jackson, Ph.D.

Faculty Scientist

Nathan is a faculty scientist in the Seibold Lab. He uses a variety of computational and statistical techniques to help the lab to tease findings related to asthma and other airway/allergic diseases from transcriptional, genomic, protein, clinical, and other data. This includes using machine learning and network analysis tools to identify endotypes of disease, data integration and trajectory analysis to reconstruct how disease may modify differentiation pathways based on single-cell sequencing data, and mixed modeling approaches to study the genes and pathways driving disease phenotypes in paired experimental and longitudinally sampled datasets.

Yingchun Li, MD/Ph.D.

Faculty Scientist

After finishing my basic and clinical postdoctoral fellowship training at University of California San Diego, I joined Max Seibold lab as a senior scientist in the Regenerative Medicine and Genome Editing (REGEN) Program. I have been leading  human airway regenerative medicine project to develop an integration-free reprogramming method for generation of iPSCs and further differentiate into patient-specific, genetically corrected (CRISPR-based gene editing), and epigenetically pure human airway basal stem cells. I have successfully developed a novel approach to consistently and robustly generate a pure population of airway basal stem cells from iPSCs capable of producing a normal mucociliary epithelium. These methods represent a significant advance in the pursuit for airway epithelium regeneration to treat chronic lung airway diseases.

Elmar Pruesse, Ph.D.

Bioinformatics Software Engineer

Dr. Elmar Pruesse is a bioinformatician and computational biologist focussing on algorithms and databases for large scale sequence analysis. He received his PhD from the Max Planck Institute for Marine Microbiology in 2011 and joined the Seibold lab in 2020 where he is currently bioinformatics software and data engineer and occasional analyst. He is in charge of data integration, management and QC for the PRIMERO nasal swabs processed at the Seibold Lab as well as RNA-Seq NGS data processing.


Zoe Stewart

Senior Lab Researcher

I have been working in the Seibold Lab since November of 2021. My research is centered on the development of childhood asthma as well as atopic dermatitis.


Elizabeth Secor


I joined the Seibold Lab in 2022 and have not stopped learning since! My previous work has been in biostatistics and epidemiology for public health and medicine, so this was a chance for me to jump into bioinformatics. My current projects focus on transcriptomic changes in the airway with SARS-CoV-2 infection and how environmental exposures affect lung function in children with asthma. In my free time, I enjoy watercolor painting, reading books, and identifying bee species in my garden.
