Dr. Sebastian Schmidl
Dr. Sebastian Schmidl earned a Master of Science, PhD in Science (Biology) from University of Göttingen in Germany. He will be teaching general ecology, general microbiology, cell and molecular biology, global change, independent research/study, genetics, environmental chemistry, endangered ecosystems and a seminar in biology. His research interests include exploring bacterial signaling principles underlying host-specific adaptation and virulence. By understanding these regulatory processes, it will eventually be possible to create new treatment regimens for infectious diseases. This is even more important considering the increasing emergence of antibiotic resistant pathogens.
“I am excited to be part of this unique collaborative approach to offer multiple degrees from different A&M system institutions on one campus. With an interdisciplinary science background, my aim is to establish an exciting and innovative biology program with cutting-edge research opportunities that prepares talented young people for STEM careers.”
