    Climate change dramatically impacts freshwater ecosystems, which are becoming warmer, more acidic, and nutrient rich. The collective influence of the microbial inhabitants of these ecosystems, despite their tiny size, can have an immense impact on water quality. However, we lack fundamental knowledge on the ecology[...]

    CIHMID/CCFI Joint Symposium

    REGISTER HERE: cornell.ca1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form  CIHMID, and the Cornell Center For Immunology (CCFI) will present a joint research symposium, open to the Cornell community. And despite the uncertainty surrounding Covid, and the Omicron variant specifically, CIHMID and CCFI are confident our joint symposium will be safe, and accessible for all attendees. As of right now our plan is to […]

  5. Metal ion competition at the host-microbe interface

    The Helmann Lab is recruiting postdocs interested in the role of metal ions in determining the outcome of host-microbe interactions. Our group investigates conserved bacterial systems required for the acquisition, storage, trafficking, and export of metal ions. Interested candidates will be able to explore the mechanistic basis of metal ion homeostasis using a variety of […]

    Research in my lab probes the environmental, structural and physiological basis of bacterial survival. The majority of earth’s microbes exist in a non-growing, surival state, making it important to better understand the mechanisms underpinning this physiological state. We primarily use the environmental zoonotic pathogen, Coxiella burnetii (causative agent[...]

    The Feaga lab is focused on how bacteria maintain protein synthesis capacity under stress. We aim to identify factors that interact with the ribosome and prevent stalling, and to understand the impact of ribosome stalling on cell physiology. In particular, we are interested in how[...]

    Trevor’s research examines the symbiotic interaction between plant roots and arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi, an association critical for mineral nutrient acquisition in widespread plant lineages. To address questions regarding the regulation and development of host-microbe symbiotic programming, he aims to spatially resolve plant and fungal gene[...]

    Janelle’s research project aims to understand how diet affects the microbiome, and how these diet-dependent microbiome changes affect the immune system- particularly CD8+ T cells. Her work also uses flow cytometry and sequencing to look at how diet and microbiome changes in early life affects[...]

    Fungi are responsible for devastating crop infestations that threaten global food supplies and diseases that result in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of individuals each year. We use genetic and genomic techniques spanning from classical molecular biology to high-throughput functional genomics to understand how[...]
