Melanie Blokesch, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne (EPFL) - "How the pathogen Vibrio cholerae kills its bacterial enemies and embraces its kin"
Location: GH Aud 106, 4pm
Host: Carol Gross
The Blokesch Lab’s research focuses on the question “How and why do some bacteria evolve to become human pathogens?” Their model organism is Vibrio cholerae, the causative agent of cholera. Cholera is still widespread around the world with up to 4 million cases every year. The ultimate goal of our research is to link the ecology and evolution of the organism to the epidemiology of the disease.
