welcome to the spiro lab at ut dallas

Research and education in microbiology, molecular biology and biochemistry

Stephen Spiro is Associate Provost and the C.L. and Amelia A. Lundell Distinguished Professor of Life Sciences in the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Texas at Dallas.

I am interested in bacterial genetics and physiology.  Research is focused on denitrification (the reduction of nitrate to dinitrogen) and various aspects of the metabolism of nitric oxide.  The model organisms studied in my lab are Paracoccus denitrificans and Escherichia coli.
