Jack Plume
PhD Student

Profile

My research interests lie in the field of microbiology, particularly surrounding the molecular mechanisms bacteria employ in order to survive and thrive, as well as the growing crisis of antibacterial resistance. My PhD focuses on heavy metal resistance in the Burkholderia cepacia complex, a group of closely related bacteria which are opportunistic pathogens to the immunocompromised, such as sufferers of cystic fibrosis.

My undergraduate degree at the University of Southampton enabled me to undertake a number of research projects employing a diverse range of methodologies. These included investigating the effects of maternal diet on offspring appetite regulation, enhancing neuronal survival in traumatic brain injury, and exploring the conformational changes of the bacterial ABC transporter, Sav1866.
