Bacterial Signal Transduction

The focus of our research is protein phosphorylation, a reversible post-translational modification which forms the basis of many signalling and regulatory mechanisms in the bacterial cell. 

We study bacterial cell factories, employing phosphorylation systems to improve their yield and bacterial pathogens to exploit phosphorylation systems as targets for development of new antibacterial drugs.


We are organising the 4th international conference on post-translational modifications in Bacteria in Copenhagen, 10-11 September, 2020. Registration is now open on the PTMBact 2020 conference website.
