Research Description

We believe that understanding the relationships between bacteria and their environment will lead to preventing disease and promoting health. We probe these relationships at the cellular level by combining high-resolution microscopy with molecular, biochemical and biophysical techniques.

Research Summary

Dr. Cezar Khursigara's research focuses on understanding how bacterial pathogens respond to their environment to cause disease. They are particularly interested in factors involved in biofilm formation and chronic infection. His research group is taking a multidisciplinary approach to answer fundamental questions related to how bacteria form biofilms to cause persistent infections. By combining advanced systems biology and imaging techniques, his goal is to identify potential therapeutics that can target a broad spectrum of disease-causing bacteria.

Techniques Used

Microscopy, molecular and biochemical techniques, proteomics.
