  1. Understanding the Building Blocks of Bacteria

    Dr Angelika Gründling studies the biogenesis of the cell wall in gram positive bacteria, such as the human pathogens Staphylococcus aureus and Listeria monocytogenes. She hopes her award-winning research will one day translate into treatments for life-threatening infections.
