Congratulations to professor Britt Glausinger and professor Arash Komeili, who have been named Fellows of the American Academy of Microbiology. The Academy recognizes its Fellows for their record of scientific achievement as well as their contributions to the field of microbiology. 

Glausinger's work is focused on the unique strategies used by viruses to alter gene expression in host cells, work that seeks to understand the relationship and interactions between viruses and their hosts.

Komeili researches the molecular mechanisms that govern the maintenance of bacterial organelles. His work allows for the identification and investigation of key genes that are instrumental in magnetosome formation and function.
