Bacterial signaling: new chemical keys to unlock the production of novel microbial antibiotics.

  • Understanding the transcriptional regulation of antibiotic biosynthesis in actinomycete bacteria, from which more than 70% of clinically-approved antibiotics originate.
  • Exploiting signaling molecules (microbial hormones) to induce production of novel antibiotics in the laboratory environment

I am working on the following projects at the moment:

  • Project number 1
  • Project number 2
  • Project number 3

I am currently interested in bacterial signalling - new chemical keys to unlock the production of novel microbial antibiotics; understanding the transcriptional regulation of antibiotic biosynthesis in actinomycete bacteria (from which more than 70% of clinically-approved antibiotics originate); exploiting signalling molecules (microbial hormones) to induce production of novel antibiotics in the laboratory environment.

I am supervising the following PhD students:

  • Person 1, Topic 1
  • Person 2, Topic 2
  • Person 3, Topic 3

At the moment I am unable to accept any further applications, but if you get in touch I'll see if a member of my team might be able to help.
