 Trent joined ORC in November of 2017 after spending 20+ years in the US Army and US Army Reserve serving as both an enlisted member and an officer. He received a BS and MS in Biology at the University of Mississippi (but we won't hold that against him) and his PhD at North Carolina State University. He has research expertise in microbial bioremediation of pesticides, probiotics, oxidative stress metallo-enzymes, multi-drug resistant organisms, biofilms, microbiomes, and predator-prey bacteria. His biosafety and clinical experience includes establishment and certification of Department of Defense overseas BSL-2 MDRO surveillance laboratories, BSL-3 Biological Select Agent and Toxin laboratories in the US and Germany and clinical microbiology diagnostic laboratories.
