Vassilis Koronakis

Vassilis's research combines cellular and structural biology with biochemistry and has uncovered many aspects of how disease-causing bacteria subvert our cells to initiate infection, and how microbes build nanomachines in their cell membranes to pump out antibiotics, so developing multi-drug resistance.
