Research group: Cereal symbiosis

Mia Horton


After having completed a BSc in Microbiology at Nottingham Trent University with a research project topic of characterising the membrane integrity of porin knockout strains of E. coli, I felt passionate about academic research, which inspired me to pursue a Masters of Research in Molecular Microbiology. The research project within this focused on the identification of bacteriophages from Nottinghamshire rivers with depolymerase activity against Serratia marcescens, which acts as a potential therapeutic alternative to antibiotics. This project included the identification of four novel bacteriophages.

I am excited to join Uta Paszkowski’s Cereal Symbiosis team as a Research Laboratory Technician in which we will be investigating the mechanisms behind arbuscular mycorrhizal symbiosis development, and to validate its functional conservation in other mycorrhizal plant species. I am looking forward to contribute to the goals of the group, and to personally develop as a researcher.
