I have recently joined the Epstein lab and excited to investigate microbial dormancy – one of the most fascinating and oldest phenomenon in microbiology. My work will focus on proving the stem cell hypothesis: entering dormancy may be deleting former patterns of gene expression in a cell thus acting as a “re-programming” switch; upon exit from dormancy cells are “blank” and ready to acquire a “novel” (not previously demonstrated) expression patterns that allow them to grow under conditions that they failed to grow before the entry into dormant state.
