From left to right:
- Kelley Hurst-Hess, Research Scientist - Kelley uses high throughput transcriptomic analysis to identify changes in gene expression upon antibiotic exposure. She then uses recombineering to delete genes of interest and ascribe a role for these genes in resistance to specific antibiotics.
- Pallavi Ghosh, Ph.D. - Mycobacterial Stress Response
- Paulami Rudra - Paulami studies the role of a ribosome associated protein in macrolide resistance. She also identified TetX that confers resistance to tetracycline in M. abscessus and is now identifying small molecules that can inhibit its function.
- Yong Yang, Research Scientist - Yong studies the role of sigma factors and biofilm formation on the drug resistance of M. abscessus.
