Research in the Lopatkin lab focuses on understanding how bacterial metabolism contributes to the spread of antibiotic resistance. We do this using a combination of systems and synthetic biology: predictive mathematical modeling with experimental validation. The ultimate goal is to elucidate key underlying principles that govern the spread of resistance in microbial populations so that we can leverage these dynamics to develop effective therapeutic strategies.
