Overview

Rok's group is using a range of microbiology and advanced microscopy techniques to understand how mutagenesis and DNA repair depend on cell-cell interactions. This is important for the understanding of microbial evolution and emergence of antimicrobial resistance.

Biography

After gaining a BA and a PhD in biology at the University of Ljubljana, Rok spent a few years in the industry. He came to Manchester in 2011 to conduct a post-doctoral research on microbial mutation rates in Chris Knight lab. In 2020 he was awarded the Future Leaders Fellowship.
