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:

NEWS AND OPPORTUNITIES

Seven new papers

It’s been a productive six months for the Greening Lab with seven new publications, including in discipline-leading journals ISME Journal, Nature Ecology & Evolution, Molecular Ecology, and Environmental Science & Technology. Check the publications section for more.

Medical funding success

In a major boost for our medical research program, we were awarded two major grants by the NHMRC to tackle tuberculosis infection: a New Investigator grant focused on validating new drug targets and a collaborative grant with ANU to alleviate nitroimidazole drug resistance.

Welcome team members!

We’re delighted to welcome postdoctoral fellow Eleonora Chiri, bioinformatician Maria Chuvochina, visiting postdoc Karen Jordaan, and Honours students Katie Bayly and Guy Shelley to the lab.
