Dr Klaus Winzer

Klaus Winzer is a microbiologist with a longstanding interest in bacterial physiology and metabolism.

His current research focuses on pathogenic and non-pathogenic clostridia, in particular in vivo metabolism and cell-to-cell communication. In collaboration with Prof. Nigel Minton, he is using metabolic engineering and synthetic biology approaches to optimise the bacterial production of biofuels and chemical commodities. A particular focus is on understanding and exploiting the metabolism of gas-fermenting species, which can grow on carbon monoxide and/or carbon dioxide and hydrogen.
