About the PNAS Member Editor
Name Harwood, Caroline S.
Location University of Washington
Primary Field Animal, Nutritional and Applied Microbial Sciences
Secondary Field Microbial Biology
 Election Citation
Harwood's microbiology research has provided knowledge of bacterial pollutant degradation and renewable hydrogen energy production, and uncovered how antibiotic-resistant biofilms form in the lungs of cystic fibrosis patients.
 Research Interests
Carrie's research in environmental microbiology and physiology focuses on how bacteria integrate diverse environmental signals and diverse metabolic modules to function at the whole cell level. Current studies include: how bacteria sense surfaces; new plant-derived quorum sensing signals; regulation of bacteria photosynthesis; molecular determinants of bacterial longevity, bacterial desiccation tolerance and use of sunlight to drive bioenergy production.
