Welcome to the Bowers Lab!

We study gene expression and nutrient uptake in our favorite aquatic bacterium, Caulobacter crescentus.
We also study biofilm formation (and ways to mitigate it) in the opportunistic pathogen, Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
We are committed to promoting an inclusive, equitable, and anti-racist lab culture in which each members’ individual ideas, perspectives, and experiences are heard, valued, and respected.
