Microbial pathogens must adapt to the host nutritional and immune environment to promote infection. This seminar will center on bacterial fatty acid synthesis and uptake by the gram-positive bacterium Staphylococcus aureus.  I will highlight the relevance of cell envelope lipid composition to S. aureus infection dynamics and innate immune cell recognition and will explore the host lipid repertoire as a nutrient that impacts bacterial survival during infection.
