Dr. Martin Stahl completed his PhD in Microbiology at the University of Ottawa under the direction of Dr. Alain Stintzi. His doctoral research focused on mechanisms of infection and pathogenesis of the common gastrointestinal pathogen Campylobacter jejuni
. Most notably, this research discovered new metabolic pathways within the bacteria, which impacted its virulence in humans. Following completion of his PhD, he moved to Vancouver to work under Dr. Bruce Vallance at the BC Children’s Hospital Research Institute (BCCHR) as a postdoctoral fellow. His research here focused on innate immune responses to Campylobacter
infection and developing new models that could be used to study how this bacteria cause disease in human patients. He has continued working under Bruce Vallance as a research associate, working jointly under a MICTACS between the BCCHR and Vancouver based Stemcell Technologies. This more recent work has focused on developing tools for the cultivation of intestinal stem cells into intestinal organoids as a new model for intestinal research with implications in the field of IBD research.
