Title: The "Bacterial Swarm” in Chronic Human Infections

Pradeep K. Singh, MD - University of Washington

Host: Alan Hauser, MD, PhD



Chronic infections involve long-term interactions between bacteria and their hosts, some lasting for decades. The chronic Pseudomonas aeruginosa infections that afflict people with cystic fibrosis (CF) and chronic wounds are a prime example. This presentation will highlight recent findings on the evolution of diversity in bacterial populations causing chronic infections and discuss mechanisms and consequences of bacterial diversification in disease.
