Kevin Griffith, Assistant Professor and Director of M.S. Applied Molecular Biotechnology Program

Research in my laboratory is aimed at understanding how bacterial communities use extracellular cell-cell signaling molecules to coordinate biological processes as a group. This process, referred to as quorum sensing, is used by many bacteria to regulate a variety of biomedically-relevant processes including the production of virulence factors...
