Research Interests

Fundamental processes of gene expression, protein synthesis, and metabolic networks and how these relate to the growth physiology of cells. Flow cytometry to measure properties at the single cell level and to monitor and control cultures in bioreactors.


Friedrich Srienc’s research focuses on the physiology of cell growth and the formation of certain cell products of interest in microorganisms. His lab’s research extends into both experimental approaches and theoretical tools with the goal of obtaining experimental data on the composition of individual cells and how this composition is distributed within the population of cells.
