The Johnston Lab is an interdisciplinary team of classically trained microbiologists, synthetic microbiologists, bioinformaticians and engineers.
We focus on bacteria: the good, the bad, and sometimes the generally unheard of.
Using cutting edge technologies and methodologies, we seek to gain a deeper functional understanding of what bacteria are doing and how they are doing it, and then to use that information to create novel therapeutics and engineer the next generation of microbe-based technologies for application in human medicine, synthetic biology and bioengineering.
