Joshua Adkins

Biography:

Dr. Joshua Adkins' research centers on comprehensive characterization of proteins through space (associated proteins, structural determinants and localization) and time (before and after treatment, cell cycle, day-night cycle, and evolutionary changes) to better understand biological systems. Of particular interest to Dr. Adkins are challenging biological studies that require bridging the gaps between technology development and biological application. In recent years, this interest has led him to investigate host-pathogen interactions as model systems, ranging from studies of single pathogens, such as Salmonella to studies of host response, such as changes in lung fluid with viral infection. Currently, Dr. Adkins is Director for the Center for Systems Biology of EnteroPathogens(Offsite link). In this role, he leads a talented and multidisciplinary team comprised of scientists from PNNL, universities, and other research organizations whose aim is to develop therapeutics for the causative agents of Typhoid Fever and the Black Plague.
