Manuel Razo-Mejia

PhD Institution
California Institute of Technology
Postdoctoral institution and lab

Petrov Lab, Stanford University

Manuel has been studying the biophysics of single cells to investigate how single cell organisms with no nervous system can still use signals from their environments to make decisions. As a Schmidt Science Fellow, he will pivot into experimental evolution with the aim of tackling antibiotic resistance. Manuel will take an interdisciplinary approach to investigate experimental data on the evolution of antibiotic resistance in microorganisms with the ultimate aim of informing new treatments.
