School of Biosciences

Research in Steve Busby’s lab is concerned with understanding the molecular mechanisms that control gene expression in bacteria, with particular attention to studying the regulation of transcription initiation in Escherichia coli. Much of the recent work has focussed on the expression of virulence determinants in pathogenic strains.

Dr Kerstin Voelz

Lecturer in Eukaryotic Microbiology

School of Biosciences

Dr Voelz is a lecturer in eukaryotic microbiology with a research interest in host-pathogen interactions. She investigates how fungal pathogens circumvent and hijack innate immune responses to establish disease using a zebrafish larval model. In particular she aims to decode how fungi initiate spore germination, why the immune system sometimes fails to inhibit this process and how this ...
