Prof. Tracy Palmer

Prof. Tracy Palmer is Professor of Molecular Microbiology and Head of the Division of Molecular Microbiology. The major research focus of her group is the transport of proteins by the twin arginine protein transport pathway and the contribution that it makes to the physiology of bacteria. In collaboration with the Drug Discovery Unit in the College of Life Sciences, her laboratory is working towards identifying small molecules that interfere with the activity of the Tat machinery that might be useful precursors to novel antimicrobial drugs.
