Breakfast Club Seminar

"Understanding the Complexities of Chronic Infection and Future Therapeutic Strategies"

Steven Diggle, Ph.D.
School of Biological Sciences
Georgia Tech

Bacteria communicate, cooperate and compete, resulting in a wide range of group behaviors such as biofilm formation, chemical warfare and quorum sensing. The Diggle lab, based in the Center for Microbial Dynamics & Infection at Georgia Tech, studies microbial interactions and social behaviors and the implications for virulence, antimicrobial resistance and therapeutic interventions.

The IBB Breakfast Club Seminar Series was started with the spirit of the Institute's interdisciplinary mission in mind to feature local IBB faculty member's research in a seminar format. Faculty are often asked to speak at other universities and conferences, but do not often present at their home institution - this seminar series is an attempt to close that gap. IBB Breakfast Club Seminars are open to anyone in the bio-community.
