Dr. Giorno-McConnell’s research interests involve the protein coatings that encase bacterial spores and allow them to survive harsh environments. She studies the assembly of the coat and the exosporium in the spore-forming bacteria Bacillus anthracis. Her work is done in the attenuate Sterne strain of B. anthracis.
