Brian E. Ford Brian joined the lab in January 2012. His doctoral dissertation included three projects: host-range expansion in the Pseudomonas bacteriophage Φ6, a non-genetic host factor affecting subsequent fitness in an RNA virus, and studying the host-virus arms race with its affect on host phenotype. Following his graduation in 2015, Brian joined the Mechano-Micro-Biology Lab as a post-doctoral researcher. He is currently a Research Associate at the Biosciences Institute at Newcastle University.
