We study the opportunistic pathogen Pseudomonas aeruginosa, a cause of serious infections in hospitalized patients and in people with cystic fibrosis. We are interested in how it attaches to and moves along surfaces using retractable protein filaments called type IV pili and forms antibiotic tolerant biofilms. We use methods ranging from microscopy and molecular biology to structural and chemical biology to understand and perturb these processes.
