Peter A. Bron
Peter A. Bron initiated his research career in 1999, as he obtained the Ph.D. degree within WCFS (currently TIFN) on the molecular response of Lactobacillus plantarum to intestinal passage and conditions, resulting in 7 peer-reviewed publications and 2 patents. He has been working in the scientific area of host-microbe interactions ever since and continued his career with a 2.5-year postdoc in Cork (Ireland) investigating Listeria monocytogenes temporal gene expression profiles during infection. Subsequently, he returned to TIFN as a Postdoctoral Researcher in a project on fermentation-enhanced probiotic function. Currently, he is holding a position as a Senior Scientist in a TIFN project in the molecular probiotic-host interaction field. Moreover, in the beginning of 2010, he was appointed as Program Leader within the The Kluyver Centre for Genomics of Industrial Fermentation, Lactic Acid Bacteria Program. Finally, he held a position as Commercial Project Leader within NIZO Food Research. His areas of expertise are probiotics, probiotic-host interactions, in situ gene expression, transcriptomics, comparative genomics, bacterial genetics, lactic acid bacteria, and food fermentation.
