I am a PhD student of the microbiology department at the Ludwig-Maximilians Universität München. I work at the chair of Prof. Kirsten Jung. The topic of our workpackage deals with "K+ homeostasis in Escherichia coli". In special I'm working on the sensor kinase KdpD that controls together with the response regulator KdpE the expression of the high-affinity K+ uptake system KdpFABC. The yet not fully understood molecular mechanism of stimulus perception and signal transduction is of particular
I am a first year PhD student, working with Professor Robert Poole (University of Sheffield), Professor Jeff Green (University of Sheffield) and Dr Jamie Wood (University of York) using a systems biology approach to study respiration in Escherichia coli.
