Research focus

The Robinson lab develops single-molecule and single-cell imaging techniques to study how bacterial cells respond to antibiotics. The primary focus of the lab is to understand how events that occur at the level of molecules and cells can lead to the development of antibiotic resistance in bacterial populations.
