The MCTC Biotechnology program and STEM Career and Internship Club proudly present a great session with Dr. Bonnie Bassler, Professor and Chair of the Department of Molecular Biology at Princeton University. As part of the April 8 STEM Fair, Dr. Bassler’s talk will provide key insights into the mechanism by which bacteria communicate, called “quorum sensing.” Bacteria use quorum sensing to coordinate certain behaviors including antibiotic resistance.
Join Biotechnology and the STEM Career and Internship Club for “Tiny Conspiracies: Cell-to Cell Communication in Bacteria” Tuesday, April 8 from 1:30–2:30 p.m. in T.1250 (the first floor plaza by the dining room).
Dr. Bassler is a recipient of the American Philosophical Society Award, Royal Society Fellowship Award, L’Oreal-UNESCO Women in Science Award and The National Academy of Sciences Fellowship. An example of Bonnie Bassler’s work can be found as a TED talk here.Tags: biotechnology, STEM
