Position title: Current TL1 Post-Doctoral Fellow
**New in 2022** Justin Buchanan, PhD, Pathobiological Science, began as a TL1 postdoctoral trainee on January 1, 2022. His postdoctoral research proposes to mechanistically model links between metabolic adaptations and drug resistance. The proposed work forms the foundation of a research program targeted at identifying novel therapeutic strategies and new drug targets that interfere with essential components of bacteria physiology. Jessica Hite, PhD (Pathobiological Sciences, SVM), is Buchanan’s primary mentor and David Wassarman, PhD (Genetics, SMPH/CALS), is his secondary mentor.
