Early Career Panellist: Allison J. Lopatkin


Postdoctoral Fellow, Massachusetts Institute of Technolog, MA, USA

Allison J. Lopatkin, PhD, works as a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Institute for Medical Engineering and Sciences at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the Infectious Disease and Microbiome group at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard (both MA, USA), as a member of the Collins Lab. She completed her PhD training in Biomedical Engineering at Duke University (NC, USA), and her BS training in Applied Mathematics at the University of Rochester (NY, USA). Allison’s work uses quantitative methods to study the spread of antibiotic resistance within bacterial populations, including synthetic biology approaches and mathematical modeling. Her current research interests include evolutionary dynamics of bacterial communities, leveraging horizontal gene transfer to target pathogens, and adjuvant discovery to extend the efficacy of existing antibiotics.
