Research Summary

Bryan started January 16, 2013 in the section of Molecular Genetics and Microbiology. His graduate research explored many areas including responses to DNA damage, ribosome maturation and plant/bacteria symbiosis. During his postdoctoral fellowship at Harvard Medical School Bryan fused traditional genetics with functional genomics and mass spectrometry to decipher virulence gene regulation in the bacterial pathogen Vibrio cholerae. While continuing his research on gene networks required for V. cholerae virulence, Bryan has expanded his investigations to the environmental persistence of hospital pathogens. This latter project aims to understand how certain bacteria can thrive in the hospital setting and how cleaning practices can be improved to help slow the transmission of antibiotic resistant bacteria to and between patients.
