I'm Adewale Joseph Ogunleye, a new PhD student in the lab.
I am Nigerian, and studied Microbiology in my Bachelors at Adekunle Ajasin University, Nigeria. I moved to study Bioinformatics at the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, where I worked on long non coding RNA and their impact on the development of acute myeloid leukaemia.
My PhD project aims to unravel the molecular mechanism that contribute to bacterial revival after antibiotic treatment. I will use high-throughput approaches to systematically investigate revival of the enteric pathogen Salmonella Typhimurium. To further test the in vivo relevance of my project, I will re-assess bacterial revival inside murine macrophages, which are the preferred host niche during systemic salmonellosis.
