WH Pierce 2002: Phil Hill

Phil Hill is associate professor in microbiology at the University of Nottingham. His research interests fall into three areas: bacterial gene control, imaging and synthetic biology.

Phil’s research group's interest is the development of 'in situ' reporter/marker systems in bacteria, which track organisms and allows expression of their genes to be measured in real time, without destruction of the organisms under investigation.

They’ve developed high-level bacterial bioluminescence and fluorescent protein expression systems for both Gram positive and Gram negative organisms, as well as dual-reporter operons to exploit the complementary advantages of each of these reporter systems simultaneously.
