Dr. Lizah van der Aart

Lizah works as a postdoctoral researcher at the Centre for Bacterial Cell Biology at the Newcastle University. She writes popular science articles and makes scientific illustrations. 

"Bacteria are capable of growing as multicellular organisms, despite the usual portrayal as single cells. We study the switch from single to multicellular organisms, this will show us how multicellular organisms coordinate and organise growth."
