About the Project

All bacteria need to interact with their environment to survive, but pathogens have particular demands to do this in an efficient way. We are studying the nanomachines that many bacteria use to move around in search of nutrients and the protein secretion systems that they use to export toxins. This project will use cutting edge molecular biology, biochemistry and structural biology including X-ray crystallography and single particle cryo electron microscopy.
