We study the responses of microbial communities and isolated microbes to external stress, such as antimicrobial agents. You will find more information on our ongoing projects in the Research page, or refer to the Publications page for our completed work. 

The Belenky Lab is involved in other projects through valuable collaborations across the state, country, and globe. We are also part of a larger microbiome research community, the Rhode Island Microbiome Consortium.
