Postdoc Boehm Receives Damon Runyon Cancer Award

Michelle Boehm, a post-doctoral fellow in the Bassler lab, was awarded a fellowship from the Damon Runyon Cancer Institute.  This three-year award will fund her proposal titled “Understanding the molecular mechanisms of prokaryotic/ eukaryotic communication”.  The overriding goal of this work is to explore the mechanisms and consequences of chemical communication between bacteria (Vibrio harveyi and Vibrio cholerae) and eukaryotes (Caenorhabditis elegans) known as ‘interkingdom signaling’.  This study will enable comparison of two potentially different interkingdom ‘conversations’:  one involving food detection/predation (C.elegans & V.harveyi) and one involving host detection/pathogenesis (C.elegans & V.cholerae).
