John Boyce is a group leader in the Department of Microbiology, Biomedicine Discovery Institute, Monash University. His research is focused on elucidating the molecular mechanisms of antibiotic resistance, bacterial pathogenesis and host immunity to infections. He works with a wide range of Gram-negative and Gram-positive pathogens including, Acinetobacter baumannii, Pasteurella multocida, Burkholderia pseudomallei, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Dichelobacter nodosus and Clostridium perfringens. His specialty area of expertise is next generation high-throughput sequencing for bacterial genomics and transcriptomic analyses.
