Understanding how bacteria communicate may help scientists prevent disease

he formation of biofilms or short-circuiting bacteria's ability to become virulent by disturbing their communication network so they remain harmless, is an alternative strategy to controlling disease," he said.

Kulkarni will continue his collaboration with the Princeton University group on V. cholerae and will collaborate with Virginia Tech Biology Professor Ann Stevens, whose group is working on V. fischeri, the bacteria that causes luminescence and whose genome has recently been sequenced ("Complete genome sequence of Vibrio fischeri: A symbiotic bacterium with pathogenic congeners," by E. G. Ruby, M. Urbanowski, J. Campbell, A. Dunn, M. Faini, R. Gunsalus, P. Lostroh, C. Lupp, J. McCann, D. Millikan, A. Schaefer, E. Stabb, A. Stevens, K. Visick, C. Whistler, and E. P. Greenberg, published Feb. 22, 2005 in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science.).

Kulkarni received his Master of Science degree in physics from the Indian Institute of Technology in Kanpur and his Ph.D. in physics from Ohio State University. He was a postdoctoral researcher at the University of California, Davis, and a postdoctoral research scientist at the NEC Laboratories America Inc. in Princeton, N.J.
