R. Cooper Baer
Predoctoral Trainee
Boston University Chobanian & Avedisian School of Medicine, Graduate Medical Sciences

R Cooper Baer is a PhD student in the Department of Microbiology at Chobanian and Avedisian School of Medicine. He is a researcher in James Galagan’s lab in the National Emerging Infectious Diseases Laboratory and the Department of Biomedical Engineering.

Broadly, the lab studies the transcriptional regulatory networks of Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Escherichia coli, Neurospora crassa, and other microbes from computational and systems biology viewpoints. R is interested in how living things respond to changes in their environment and how regulatory mechanisms evolved by microbes can be leveraged to develop synthetic gene circuits for use in environmental and clinical diagnostics.
