Professor Luciano Marraffini recently visited our New York offices and was gracious enough to subject himself to the intense interrogation of our Micro-Interview. Check out his revealing answers above!

And, as a 'Behind the Scenes' extra, I can let you know the answers to some of our pressing soccer questions I unfortunately didn't get to onscreen (his answers in bold):

  • BOCA JUNIORS or RIVER PLATE? [NEITHER; "you should have done more research!"]
  • RONALDO OR MESSI? [Duh, "Messi is from my home town"]
  • MESSI or MARADONA? [A pause; harder question]
  • HANDBALL or HEADER? [Wry laugh; "let's call it header"]

I first developed an interest in bacterial pathogenesis while at Cornell University. I then earned my PhD in Biomedical and Biological Sciences from Harvard University in Eric Rubin’s laboratory, studying cell wall remodelling in Mycobacterium tuberculosis. From 2012-2015, I continued my training as a postdoctoral fellow in Matthew Waldor’s lab at Harvard Medical School, investigating the role of DNA methylation on regulating fundamental cellular processes in Vibrio cholerae.
