MB&B welcomes our newest faculty member, Dr. Nikhil Malvankar! Nikhil officially began here on July 1, 2015, and his lab is on the West Campus in the Microbial Sciences Institute. Nikhil comes to us from a postdoctoral position at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. He brings a Burroughs Wellcome Fund Career Award at the Scientific Interface, and he will continue his biophysical studies on how bacteria use electrical charges to carry out certain key biological processes. Learn more about Nikhil and his research by visiting the Malvankar Lab website.
