GREENING LAB | ONE HEALTH MICROBIOLOGY
Established in 2016, the Greening Lab is based in the Department of Microbiology at the Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute, Melbourne, Australia. We are a diverse team of microbiologists, biochemists, ecologists, and bioinformaticians working together to understand the causes and consequences of bacterial persistence within a ‘one health’ framework. Through work primarily funded by the National Health & Medical Research (NHMRC), Australian Research Council (ARC), and Wellcome Trust, we investigate persistence of environmental and pathogenic microorganisms in the context of four core themes — click on each image to learn more:
NEWS AND OPPORTUNITIES
Four PhD completions
Congratulations to Dr Helena Chen, Dr Sean Bay, Dr Zahra Islam, and Dr Paul Cordero for completing their PhDs during 2020. All developed brilliantly during their PhDs, delivering stellar theses and publications, and have brought so much to the lab.
New home and fellowship
The Greening Lab have relocated to Monash University’s Department of Microbiology, where Chris has taken up a prestigious five-year NHMRC EL2 Fellowship. We’re excited the new synergies this move will bring as we move in a more medically focused direction.
