As a molecular microbiologist, much of Wesley’s research has focused on a simple DNA molecule that exists in either a parasitic or symbiotic relationship with its bacterial host. How that relationship evolves at the molecular level drives his research focus pertaining to one of the biggest threats to human health – the evolution and spread of antibiotic resistance. Wesley thinks we can stop the situation from becoming worse and is intent on educating people on the why’s and how’s of antibiotic resistance.
