Title: Targeting Tuberculosis Adaptive (Mis)Translation as an Anti-Virulence Strategy

Speaker: Babak Javid, PhD, Associate Professor, Division of Experimental Medicine, UCSF


Rather than purely performing essential housekeeping functions, regulation of the protein synthesis machinery in bacterial pathogens contributes to critical adaptive functions. I will discuss how regulation of the stochastic error rate in protein synthesis in mycobacteria contributes to both antibiotic and host tolerance and potential ways to target this conserved pathway.

Host: M.-N. Frances Yap, PhD, Associate Professor, Dept. of Microbiology-Immunology
