Located in the Department of Microbiology at the University of Manitoba, our mission is to understand the molecular mechanisms that regulate bacterial growth with the long-term goal of controlling bacteria in different settings, such as infection conditions or biotechnological applications.
We are interested in environmental bacteria that have the capacity of invading plants, animals or humans, and cause disease. These interesting organisms are known as “environmental pathogens.” A remarkable example of environmental pathogens is the group of bacteria called “Burkholderia cepacia complex” (Bcc), which are the model organisms of our research.
