FOREST Katrina

Professor of Bacteriology, University of Wisconsin-Madison
Period of residence: 
23 février 2015 - 17 juillet 2015 / Accueillie en partenariat avec le Conseil général des Bouches du Rhône (CG13)
Research project: 
Across Oceans, Time Zones, Languages, and Bacterial Membranes: A Transdisciplinary Collaboration on Pilus Assembly and Bacterial Secretion
Summary of the research project: 

During a spring 2015 IMéRA-sponsored sojourn, I will address three specific aims.

1. Strengthen a collaborative and ongoing interdisciplinary research project with Dr. Romé Voulhoux on interactions of bacterial Type IV pilus and Type II secretion proteins.

2. Lay the foundation for expanded international collaborative relationship between Aix Marseilles University and the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

3. Participate fully in the rich scholarly environment of IMéRA, contributing to the investigations of other fellows and hopefully having a few unplanned insights for my own research program.
