Research Interests

Regulatory mechanisms that allow organisms to thrive on potently toxic metabolites; bacterial physiology, metabolic stress, methylobacterium.


Jannell Bazurto is a bacterial physiologist with a rich background in using mutant analysis to understand cellular metabolism in model bacteria. Her lab seeks to define mechanisms by which organisms survive, and even thrive on, toxic metabolites. The lab’s research utilizes genetic, molecular biology, biochemistry and omics methodologies to define mechanistic processes and answer biological questions at the molecular and organismal level.
