The laboratory of Dr. Daniel Dwyer is part of the Department of Cell Biology & Molecular Genetics (CBMG), Institute for Physical Science & Technology (IPST) and Maryland Pathogen Research Institute (MPRI) at the University in Maryland, College Park. We are also affilated with the Departments of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering (CHBE), as well as Bioengineering (BIOE) Dr. Dwyer’s research interests are rooted in the study of dynamic bacterial cell death processes and their influence on antibiotic susceptibility. To address complex questions related to lethally stressed pathogens, we utilize a broad complement of microbiology, biochemistry and bioengineering approaches. Most notably, we seek to apply Synthetic and Systems Biology to the identification and exploitation of physiological vulnerabilities that may enhance our antibiotic arsenal and resensitize drug resistant bacterial pathogens.
