Event description
Bacterial dormancy – hovering between life and death

About this event

Bacteria can withstand the pressures of the immune system and antibiotic treatment by adopting a dormant state. Dormant bacteria are difficult to eliminate from infected individuals.

This lecture will cover recent insights into the biology of dormant bacteria with the main emphasis on Mycobacterium tuberculosis as well as molecular mechanisms underlying dormancy and resuscitation from dormancy.

Biography

Professor Galina Mukamolova obtained her PhD in Biochemistry at the Bakh Institute of Biochemistry, Russian Academy of Sciences. She worked on resuscitation-promoting factors as a postdoctoral researcher at Aberystwyth University, and gained experience in Mycobacterium tuberculosis research at the University Health Center at Tyler, USA.

Professor Mukamolova joined the University of Leicester first as a Value-to-People Wellcome Trust fellow and then as a lecturer in 2007. She has developed a research programme to investigate the dormancy of major human pathogens and established national and international collaborations.
