Biomedical Editor Dr. Brian H. holds a Ph.D. in Microbiology from Dalhousie University, a Masters in Microbiology from the University of Guelph, and Bachelors in Microbiology from the University of Guelph. His Ph.D. dissertation focused on the culture conditions governing the production of a bacterial appendage termed spinae by a gram-negative marine pseudomonad and the ultrastructural details of this production, with the aim of harnessing the organism as a model system for protein excretion. His Masters thesis involved quantifying the binding of a variety of metal ions by the cell envelope of Escherichia coli K-12 to probe the importance of metals in maintaining the envelope structure and as a preliminary assessment of the potential of bacterial in sequestering heavy metals from the environment.
