Turning on cell-cell communication wipes out staph biofilms
Date:4/30/2008

s that the MRSA stains are quite similar to the lab strains he and Boles tested and have quorum-sensing systems that are even more active than those of the lab strains. This suggests that MRSA might be particularly sensitive to approaches that manipulate quorum sensing.

Moving a basic discovery into medically relevant experimental models is an example of translational research of the type supported and encouraged by the new Institute for Clinical and Translational Science at the UI.
