He received many honors in his career and published various articles in international journals.



Dr. Bryan Krantz's research is focused in the areas of Chemistry, Biophysics, and Molecular & Cell Biology. He has used anthrax toxin as a model system to study translocation-coupled unfolding. Through those studies, he isolated a novel oligomer architecture of the toxin, an octamer, which has opened new research angles to study the crystal structure of the toxin in its various forms. His other research interests are in nanopore sensing of toxicants and in understanding how periodontal infections and secreted pore-forming toxins may influence infections and other chronic diseases.
