Ernesto Quintero received a B.S. in Marine Biology from California State University, Long Beach, and his Ph.D. in Microbiology from the University of Maryland, College Park. Dr. Quintero’s research interests focus on the microbial ecology of heterotropic bacteria in aquatic environments. This research centers on methods for the improvement of water quality and the production of bioactive secondary metabolites by marine/estuarine bacteria as possible new therapeutic agents.
