Michael Feldgarden, Ph.D.
National Center for Biotechnology Information, National Institutes of Health
Dr. Michael Feldgarden received his Ph.D. in biology from Yale University where he examined the evolutionary ecology of colicin production in E. coli. He was a post-doc at Wesleyan University where he worked on the evolutionary ecology of Bacillus subtilis. Following that, Feldgarden was a research professor at Stony Brook University, where his research focused on finding molecular signatures of pathoadaptive loci in bacterial genomes. He then was the research director at the Alliance for the Prudent Use of Antibiotics at Tufts University, after which he joined the Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT where he developed large scale microbial genomics sequencing projects, focusing on E. coli and Staphylococcus aureus. Feldgarden currently is a staff scientist at the National Center for Biotechnology Information where, as part of the Pathogen Detection Project, he works on pathogen genomics and antimicrobial resistance informatics.
