Kim Seed, PhD, University of California at Berkeley, Berkeley, CA

Kimberley Seed is an Assistant Professor in the Plant and Microbial Biology Department at the University of California, Berkeley. She earned her Bachelor of Science degree in 2004 from the University of Alberta, her Doctor of Philosophy in Microbiology and Biotechnology under Dr. Jonathan Dennis in 2009 from the University of Alberta, and did postdoctoral training in Dr. Andrew Camilli’s laboratory at Tufts University School of Medicine in the Department of Molecular Biology & Microbiology. She was a faculty member at the University of Michigan in the Department of Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology from 2014-2016 before moving to UC Berkeley. Professor Seed’s laboratory investigates how bacterial pathogens and predatory phages co-evolve. The current major focus of the lab is towards an understanding of how phages impact the evolution and selection of epidemic Vibrio cholerae, the causative agent of cholera.
