University Distinguished Professor of Biology Kim Lewis is exploring alternative approaches to curing chronic Lyme disease using his expertise in bacterial cell persistence.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently released a new report on the impact of antibiotic resistant bacteria on national health. We asked assistant professor Betsy Hirsch to explain its significance and what it means for the public.
In recent years, the notion that there is a single mechanism by which antibiotics wipe out bacteria has permeated the field of microbiology. Now, new research from professor Kim Lewis and his team questions that hypothesis.
In collaboration with the J. Craig Ventor Institute, biology professor Slava Epstein will study the roles of microbial species in model bacterial communities of Northern Greenland.
Biology professor Slava Epstein proposes a new theory to explain why some bacteria are so hard to grow in the lab.
