科研领域简介

Dr.Martin’s research has focussed primarily on understanding better the molecular basis for pathogenicity in gram-negative bacteria – especially those which employ quorum sensing to control virulence. This work has led to the “coincidence model” for virulence, which posits that bacterial populations need to be not only “quorate” but also starving for optimal virulence factor production. More recently, the team has established a critical role for certain “metabolic nodes” in the control of virulence, with a particular emphasis on the role(s) played by carbon flux through the glyoxylate shunt in the opportunistic human pathogen, Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Martin will present the most recent findings to demonstrate how a better knowledge of this pathway can lead to new antimicrobial interventions.
