Members of my research group and I have been investigating new approaches to antibacterial therapy and to biofuel production that are inspired by the unique metabolites and physiology of Streptomyces bacteria. A hallmark of my program has been the synergistic application of experimental methods from synthetic organic chemistry, molecular microbiology and biochemistry. Thematically, my research has been organized around potential solutions to challenges in human health and in energy.

Prof. Sello earned a B.S. in biology from Morehouse College in 1997 and a Ph.D. in biophysics in 2002 from Harvard University. His doctoral research in diversity-oriented organic synthesis was carried out in the laboratory of Prof. Stuart L. Schreiber in the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology. He performed post-doctoral research in enzymology with Prof. Christopher T. Walsh at Harvard Medical School and in Streptomyces genetics with Prof. Mark J. Buttner at the John Innes Centre in Norwich, England. He is currently using experimental methods from chemistry, molecular biology and biochemistry to develop new antibacterial agents and technology platforms for bioenergy.
