Cardona Lab

We are a research group whose mission is to understand the molecular mechanisms that control bacterial growth in different settings, such as during infection or biotechnological processes. We are located in the Department of Microbiology at the University of Manitoba.

We are particularly 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 current research.
