Molecular Microbiology Group

The Molecular Microbiology theme addresses fundamental aspects of microbiology and microbial biochemistry.


Microbes are the most successful organisms on Earth and they are the driving force in the evolution, development and success of multicellular organisms. Our research addresses big questions in microbiology from the effect of microbial communities on host fitness and reproduction to their roles in driving the global sulphur and nitrogen cycles. We are funded primarily by the BBSRCNERC and MRC and we benefit through collaborations with our partner institutes on the Norwich Research Park under the auspices of Microbes in Norwich.


We welcome enquiries from prospective PhD students, postdocs and fellows
