Guillaume Bruant did his Ph.D. degree at the University François Rabelais in Tours, France, on the characterization of fimbrial genes of genital strains of haemophilus responsible for genital, mother-infant and neonatal infections, and on the development of a molecular typing method for haemophilus strains. Bruant then performed his postdoctoral work at the University of Montreal, Canada, on the development of virulence and antimicrobial resistance microarrays for Escherichia coli and on the virulome determination of attaching and effacing E. coli during exposure to target host tissue in an animal model system. In 2008, Bruant joined the Biotechnology Research Institute of Montreal, at the National Research Council of Canada. He works there as a Research Officer in the Environmental Bioengineering Group. His main current research interest is the metabolic engineering of clostridia strains for solvent production from syngas.
