Pablo Ivan Nikel


I received my PhD degree in Molecular Biology & Biotechnology from the University of San Martín (Buenos Aires, Argentina) in 2009. After receiving training in quantitative physiology techniques in USA, I wanted to further develop my skills in a laboratory interested in Systems Biology approaches of industrially-relevant microorganisms. Over the last 5 years, I have been carrying post-doctoral research in Prof. de Lorenzo’s Laboratory with financial support from the European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO) and the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Program from the EC. I currently lead the group of Systems Environmental Microbiology at the Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Biosustainability.

My general scientific interests revolve around how bacteria adapt their central metabolic pathways in response to environmental cues. The focus of my projects is not only on the curiosity-driven exploration of the metabolic lifestyle of environmental bacteria, but also the rational application of this information in metabolic engineering strategies. In this sense, Pseudomonas putida is often considered a treasure trove of metabolic and degradation activities that can be harnessed for different purposes – but how did this bug gear its central metabolism to cope with the challenges of the highly polluted sites it usually thrives in? The general objective of my research project is therefore to increase the current understanding of the regulation of metabolic pathways in P. putida by applying systems and synthetic biology methods to assist in elucidating and quantifying metabolic properties of the cells.
