Dr Keiler's research focuses on understanding how proteins are selectively produced at the right time and in the right place to execute complex biological processes such as cell cycle progression and cellular differentiation. In particular, his lab is studying how protein translation and degradation are regulated by the tmRNA protein-tagging system, and how proteins are localized within the bacterial cell. They are also exploiting what they have learned about these fundamental processes to develop reagents that control bacterial development and proliferation, to be used for novel antibiotics and for basic scientific research.
