Welcome to the Ibberson Lab
Our research centers around understanding bacterial physiology and behavior in situ during chronic human infection, with a focus on elucidating the mechanistic links between co-infecting microbes and disease severity. Our work is at the cutting edge of assessing bacterial physiology in human infection, and leverages classic microbiological techniques in combination with -omics approaches to ask foundational questions about how the prominent pathogen, Staphylococcus aureus, causes disease and persists in human infection.
Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
My laboratory and classroom welcome all regardless of race, gender identification, sexual orientation, religion, socioeconomic status, or disability status. Diverse viewpoints and experiences are critical for fostering innovation and for the advancement of science.
Poster reads: "In this lab, we believe: science is real (microscope image), love is love (rainbow anatomical heart), Black Lives Matter (brown raised fist), feminism is for everyone (female symbol), microbes are cool (picture of microbes), immigrants are welcome (Statue of Liberty)."
