Personal profile

Research Interests

Ribosomes are protein manufacturers that are essential for all cells and viruses. Our lab applies genetic, structural and biochemical principles to understand how ribosome composition and associations, antibiotics and stressors affect the translation of genetic codes and, in turn, give rise to phenotypic variations and differential manifestations of infection. Our focus spans fundamental basic biology and extends to understanding bacterial physiology and human and plant diseases.
