Dr Iain Duggin

Name: Dr Iain Duggin
Position: Senior Research Fellow
Organisation: University of Technology Sydney
Department/Division: ithree institute
Organisation type: Academic
Website: www.uts.edu.au
Primary Areas: Science & Technology (Biology)
Expertise: Microbiology, molecular biology, Archaea, Bacteria, Evolution, Extremophile, Genome replication, cytoskeleton
Notes: I lead a research team investigating microbial cell dynamics, i.e., understanding the mechanisms underpinning growth, structure, and morphological responses of microbes to their environment. Such responses are important for survival, e.g. for E. coli causing infections (such as UTI), and for environmental microbes (such as halophilic archaea living in Australia's vast salt lakes).
