Ayomide Mary Olukorede

Postgraduate Researcher

Ayomide is currently in the John Innes Foundation Rotation PhD program.

In her first rotation, she will be working in the molecular Microbiology department under the supervision of Matt Hutchings. In Matt’s lab, she is working on Streptomyces bacteria which encode many specialised metabolites that are not made under lab conditions. Ayomide is interested in making and screening regulatory mutants to see if any of these mutations switches on the production of new antibiotics.
