Laura-Isobel McCall

Dr. McCall is an Assistant Professor in Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Oklahoma. There, she focuses on using spatially-resolved metabolomics to understand host-pathogen-microbiome interactions, to guide drug development and biomarker discovery ( She obtained her PhD in Microbiology and Immunology from McGill University in 2013 and pursued postdoctoral training at the University of California San Francisco and the University of California San Diego. In 2020, she was selected as one of Chemical and Engineering News’ Talented 12: one of the “dozen young rising stars who are using chemical know-how to change the world”. She was also selected in 2021 as a “Future leader in the field of host-microbe interactions” by Infection and Immunity and a Burroughs Wellcome Fund Investigator in the Pathogenesis of Infectious Disease.
