Title: Surface Sensing in Pseudomonas aeruginosa


Matthew Parsek, PhD, Professor, Department of Microbiology, University of Washington


The initial step in the formation of surface-associated biofilm communities involves the attachment of free-swimming bacteria to a surface.  Pseudomonas aeruginosa is an opportunistic pathogen and a model organism for the study of biofilms.  In this seminar, I will discuss our findings related to two surface sensing systems (Wsp and Pil-Chp) that P. aeruginosa uses to detect that it has encountered a surface.


Alan Hauser, MD, PhD, Professor, Dept. of Microbiology-Immunology, Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine
