Wayne State University faculty expert available to discuss cholera outbreak in HaitiOctober 26, 2010
Withey's research has focused on understanding how the cholera bacteria control expression of the genes required for causing cholera and, in particular, understanding how ToxT, the one protein that activates transcription of nearly all the virulence genes, functions.
Withey received his B.A. in biology from Johns Hopkins University and his Ph.D. in cellular and molecular biology from the University of Michigan. His postdoctoral studies at the University of Michigan focused on cholera, and he has received National Institutes of Health research support and has 12 publications on the subject.
