We are proud to collaborate with outstanding scientists.

Lynmarie Thompson

Thompson Lab

Department of Chemistry, University of Massachusetts
The Thompson lab studies Transmembrane signaling by chemotaxis receptors using solid state NMR

Brian Crane

The Crane Group

The Crane group studies structure, function and mechanism of protein systems that underlie signal transduction.

Sandy Parkinson

Parkinson Lab

Department of Biology, University of Utah
The Parkinson Lab studies the chemotactic behavior of E. coli to elucidate the molecular mechanisms that cells use to detect and process information about their chemical environment.

Ebbe Sloth Anderson

Andersen Lab

Aarhus Interdisciplinary Nanoscience Center, Aarhus University, Denmark
The Andersen lab develop DNA and RNA nanostructures for applications in diagnostics, drug delivery and synthetic biology.

Dennis Claessen

The Classen Lab

Institute of Biology Leiden, Leiden University
The Claessen lab addresses fundamental questions related to multicellular growth and development in filamentous bacteria called streptomycetes.

Gilles van Wezel

Professor of Molecular Biotechnology and Cluster Director Microbial Biotechnology and Health

Leiden University
The focus of the van Wezel lab is to provide novel insight into the complex regulatory pathways that control growth, development and antibiotic production of filamentous actinomycetes, and apply this knowledge for improved commercialization of these important industrial microorganisms.

Annemarie Meijer


The Meijer lab is interested in the immunobiology of host-pathogen interactions and work with zebrafish models for infection with intracellular bacterial pathogens, like Mycobacteria and Salmonella, to study mechanisms of host defense.

Howard Berg

Professor of Molecular and Cellular Biology

Harvard University
We are trying to learn how its flagellar motors work, how their directions of rotation are controlled by the cell's sensory-transduction network, and what effect that rotation has on modes of flagellar propulsion. Our main interest is free-swimming cells, but we also study cells that swarm (swim in a coordinated manner over moist surfaces), or twitch (Pseudomonas) or glide (Cytophaga,Mycoplasma).

Leendert Hamoen


The Hamoen group studies cell division, protein localization, gene regulation & novel antimicrobials
