As an investigator within the Biotechnology component of ENIGMA, Peter’s research has focused on the study of cell membrane-based mechanisms utilized in bacterial stress response, and the formation and maintenance of communities. He brings to the program a background in biophysics, protein biochemistry and structural biology – with particular emphasis on the study of membrane proteins. Projects within this program include proteomic studies of membrane protein complexes and the determination of protein-protein interaction networks, the characterization of stress-induced changes in membrane protein abundance, and studies of cell membrane permeability.
