Hello World!

Welcome to the Cabeen Lab at Oklahoma State University!

We have big ideas about tiny little bacteria.

Because bacterial cells are so small, they often have to team up in communities to build colonies and cause infections. We study how they do that. Bacteria also have to deal with stress in their environment, just like the rest of us. We study how they sense and respond to stress so as to survive in a harsh world.

In the Cowboy spirit, we are committed to maintaining a stimulating, instructive, and fun lab environment characterized by teamwork and involvement in every aspect of the scientific process. We work hard and are proud of our large and active group of scholars. Are you inquisitive and enthusiastic? We are always on the lookout for talented students. Please check out the links above to learn more about our work and who we are. And follow us on Twitter!
