Research Interests

The Whitney Lab is interested in discovering the mode of action of protein toxins delivered between bacterial cells during interbacterial competition. By defining the mechanisms bacteria employ to kill one another, it is our goal to uncover new targets in the bacterial cell that can be exploited for the development of novel antimicrobials to help combat the ever-increasing problem of antibiotic resistance
