Rojan Beikrasouli joins us for an exciting undergraduate project

Rojan is going to join our PhD student Rebecca to develop new antimicrobial combination assays using our automation systems. Her work will focus on using cell-wall targeting antibiotics and explore how the combination of these affects growth of gram-positive bacteria. Very happy to have you join us Rojan!!
