JILLIAN BANFIELD, PH.D.

Banfield is uncovering the vast diversity of microorganisms that depend on coexisting microbial community members for most core metabolic resources, and has discovered two major evolutionary radiations, one in bacteria and the other in archaea. She is exploring the medical, industrial, and ecological significance of these newly found microorganisms.
