Marine Microbiology Research Group

Head of the group: Dr. Laura Steindler


Marine Microbiology research group (Established 2011)

Head of the group: Dr. Laura Steindler

Lab manager: Dr. Rinat Bar-Shalom

The Lab's research focuses on the following topics:

  • Host-microbe interactions (symbiosis in marine sponges)
  • Cell-cell signaling in host-associated microbiomes (quorum sensing)
  • Physiology and molecular biology of marine bacteria (e.g. SAR11) and their adaptations to the ultra-oligotrophic Eastern Mediterranean Sea
  • Photoheterotrophy in marine bacteria (proteorhodopsin, aerobic anoxygenic phototrophic bacteria)

Join us: We are recruiting M.Sc. and Ph.D. students. If you are interested please send your CV and research interests to: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
