Novel Approaches

Research summary


The lab focuses on developing novel tools for quantitative observations of changes in physiological parameters in single bacterial cells. By integrating state-of-the-art fluorescence imaging techniques, microfluidic devices, optical trapping techniques and microbiology methodologies, we are striving to understand the direct influence different stress response networks have on each other and on the survival of bacterial cells.

We are particularly interested in bacterial response to changes in external osmolarities and antibiotic treatment.
