Dr. Jonas Cremer is an Assistant Professor in Biology. He is interested in the physiology and growth of prokaryotes. Dr. Cremer studied physics and biophysics in Munich. He was a postdoctoral research at the University of California, San Diego. Before joining Stanford, he was an Assistant Professor at the University of Groningen.
Dr. Cremer's lab combines wet-lab approaches and modeling to investigate the physiology of bacterial cells and their ecological interactions. The lab's current focus is the study of gut bacteria and their interactions with each other and the human host. Their research considers various scales of prokaryotic life (from the coordination of fundamental processes within cells to the collective behavior of cells in specific ecological settings), with a focus on gut bacteria and the model organism Escherichia coli.
