GREENING LAB | INTEGRATIVE MICROBIOLOGY

Established in 2016, the Greening Lab is based in the School of Biological Sciences of Monash University, Melbourne, Australia. We are a diverse team of microbiologists, biochemists, and ecologists working together to understand the survival strategies of environmental and pathogenic bacteria. We investigate microbial persistence in the context of three core themes — click on each image to learn more:
