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.
We then 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.
