Research Interests

In the Whiteley Lab, we are interested in the social lives of bacteria. We use new technologies combined with classical genetic techniques to address questions about microbial physiology, ecology, virulence, and evolution. We primarily study chronic infections involving the pathogens Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus aureus, and Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans.
