Research at OSU: Dr. Matthew Cabeen

Shelby Cummins


Dr. Matthew Cabeen is an associate professor and researcher in Oklahoma State University’s Department of Microbiology and Molecular Genetics. I interviewed him about his work as a researcher. He became interested in microbes while working in microbiology labs over the summers as an undergraduate. This work led to an interest in ribonucleic acid, or RNA. In graduate school, he began doing work with riboswitches related to RNA. Then, he met a new professor, Christine Jacobs-Wagner, who was studying bacterial development and the proteins responsible for a curved shape in bacteria. Here, Dr. Cabeen began studying the two bacteria on which he now focuses at OSU, Bacillus subtilus and Psuedomonas aeruginosa.
