CBE-MONT Virtual Seminar: The secret life of DNA: A tale of DNA’s many roles in biofilm
- Thursday, November 12, 2020 from 4:10pm to 5:00pm
Dr. Rikke Meyer is an associate professor at the Interdisciplinary Nanoscience Center at Aarhus University in Denmark. She leads a research group of students and post docs with backgrounds in microbiology, nanoscience, biophysics, engineering, dentistry, and medicine. Her research combines microbiology and nanotechnology to understand how bacteria interact with materials to form biofilms, how biofilms might be controlled–either by development of anti-adhesive materials, degradation of biofilms with matrix-targeting enzymes, or treatment with novel anti-persister antibiotics, targeted drug delivery, or prodrug therapy. Dr. Meyer engages in many collaborative projects and has worked with industry partners from the food, water, and medical sectors. Her talk will address a question of more fundamental nature, namely the role of DNA in biofilms.
This seminar is co-hosted by MSU's Montana Nanotechnology Facility (MONT)
