Daniel Wall received his Ph.D. degree from the University of Utah, UT, USA. He studied molecular chaperones and the heat shock response in Escherichia coli. His postdoctoral training was at Stanford University where he studied type IV pili, gliding motility, and cell-cell signaling in Myxococcus xanthus. He then worked in the biotechnology sector on antibiotic drug discovery. Currently, Dr. Wall holds a faculty position at the Molecular Biology Department at the University of Wyoming. His laboratory studies a number of topics in myxobacteria including how myxobacteria recognize each other, fuse and exchange outer membrane proteins, microbial predation, gliding motility, and secondary metabolite production.
