Bacteria and archaea are among the smallest forms of life on the planet, but don't let their size fool you...

When people don’t communicate effectively, relationships suffer and entire organizations can fail. When cells don’t communicate effectively, disease and sometimes death follow.

The Georgia Research Alliance has named Lance Wells, an associate professor of biochemistry and molecular biology, a Lars G. Ljungdahl Distinguished Investigator. As such, he will receive an endowment of $250,000 throughout a five-year period provided jointly by the GRA and the UGA Research Foundation.

Bacteria and archaea play diverse and critical roles in human life - from deadly human pathogens to essential residents of our bodies and of the earth's ecosystems.  We also make use of prokaryotes extensively in biotechnology, food production, and industrial processes.  Importantly, all of these organisms ar
