Dr Pete Lund

Dr Pete Lund

Reader in Molecular Microbiology

School of Biosciences

Research in our group focusses on stress responses, using prokaryotes as model systems, and using a range of appropriate methods to understand both the mechanistic details and the adaptive significance of different aspects of organismal responses to stress.  We have specific interests in molecular chaperones and in acid stress responses, and also a more general interest in methods that can ...
