My main current research interest is in metal ion uptake systems in staphylococci and Clostridium difficile. Although such systems have been well characterised in many Gram negative pathogens those in many Gram positives still remain poorly defined. I am particularly interested in ABC type transporters and their functions and the regulation of their expression in response to metal ion limitation. I also have a more general interest in microbial pathogenicity and have previously worked with a variety of other organisms including Candida albicans, spirochetes and Helicobacter pylori. Techniques: General molecular biology techniques, protein expression and purification, microbial cell fractionation and radiolabelling, tissue culture and use of Galleria mellonella as a non-vertebrate infection model.
