Salvador Almagro-Moreno, Ph.D.
My name is Trudy-Ann Grant and I am from Jamaica. I received my Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences and a minor in Chemistry from Florida International University and my Master of Health Science degree from Fairleigh Dickinson University.
I am a Ph.D. student interested in therapeutic treatments against bacterial disease. Specifically, I study the emergence and evolution of resistance against antimicrobial compounds in the Vibrionaceae and the evolution of their pathogenicity factors.
While I do enjoy increasing my scientific knowledge, my other hobbies include spending time with family, cooking, and drawing. My career aspiration is to become a key member on a drug discover team.
Dr. Deepak Balasubramanian
My name is Deepak Bala and I am currently a Postdoctoral Scholar in the Moreno lab. I did my Ph.D. at Florida International University.
I study the molecular mechanisms and regulation of persister cell formation in Vibrio cholerae.
I am a Masters Student pursuing a degree in Biotechnology interested in the evolution of pathogenesis.
Specifically, I study the role and ecological dynamics of Virulence Adaptive Polymorphisms (VAPs) in Vibrio cholerae and the evolution of its pathogenicity factors.
I graduated with a Bachelors degree in Biotechnology and Genetic Engineering from Khulna University, Bangladesh. In the future, I want to pursue a Ph.D. in Microbiology.
When I am not in the lab, I enjoy traveling, reading fiction, and watching movies and scientific documentaries.
Jane Maureen Jayakumar
I am a Masters Student pursuing a degree in Biotechnology interested in the bacterial pathogenesis and immune evasion. Specifically, I study the evolution of virulence and host colonization of Vibrio vulnificus.
I graduated with a Bachelors degree in Biotechnology from NMAM IT, India. In the future, I want to pursue a Ph.D. in Microbiology and Immunology.
When not killing bacteria in the lab I like to read novels and travel to new places.
Mario Lopez-Perez, Ph.D.
I am a visiting Postdoctoral Fellow from the University Miguel Hernandez in Alicante (Spain) where I am a senior fellow in the Laboratory of Dr. Francisco Rodriguez Valera.
I am interested in the evolutionary and ecological dynamics of marine bacteria.
I graduated with a PhD from the Institute of Agrochemistry and Food Technology, Valencia (Spain)
