Amer Al Ali is a graduate student with BSc in Medical Laboratory Sciences from King Khalid University, Saudi Arabia. He also attended Quinnipiac University in Hamden, CT, where he graduated with a Master of Health Science. Specifically, his M.S. Thesis work involved in investigating the role of φBB-1, a bacteriophage of Borrelia burgdorferi, in gene transfer. His interests in bacteriology developed during his undergraduate studies when he was exposed to bacterial diagnosis of clinical samples. It grew even bigger when he was working on bacteriophage during his master studies. He is in particular fascinated by the ability of bacteria to alter their gene expression depending on the challenges they face. He is currently a Ph.D. student in the Thompson Laboratory working on post-transcriptional regulation of stress response genes in Staphylococcus aureus. Outside of the lab, he enjoys playing soccer, volleyball, hiking, and spending time with his family and friends.
