CORE COMPETENCIES
  • Screening methods for detecting bacterial agents that can activate/deactivate avian flu viruses and interrogating select cell lines for microbiome research
  • Cultivating/isolating select extremophile organisms as a source of alternative energy production for biosensing capabilities
  • Cellular lipid and protein analysis for investigating molecular redox mechanisms
MAJOR PROJECTS
  • Biosystems – isolate extremophiles with interesting and robust extracellular electron transfer capabilities to potentially power remote sensing devices
  • Human Performance – interrogate known mitochondrial metabolic phenomenon that are still not well understood in terms of electron transfer mechanisms which control organism survival and viability
  • Biomedical – identifying secreted proteases from Aeromonas sobria that affect avian influenza virus infectivity
