Title: Managing Metals in Microbes

John Helmann, PhD

Professor and Dept. Chair, Department of Microbiology, Cornell University

Host: Bacteriology Graduate Students and Postdocs, Coordinator Linda Hu, PhD


Competition for metal ions can determine the outcome of bacterial infections, and bacteria have sophisticated regulatory systems to overcome both metal limitation and excess. We have developed Bacillus subtilis as a model system for understanding metal ion homeostasis, with a recent focus on the role of metal ion efflux systems. I will focus on emerging insights into metal trafficking and transport with reference to the importance during bacterial pathogenesis.
