Next week’s journal club discussion will be on polymicrobial ear infections (otitis media or OM) in children. Mike Dorrington (a grad student in the Bowdish lab) will discuss both the role of the upper respiratory tract microbial flora (Armbruster et al., 2010) and the finding that quorum signaling plays an important role in the tenacity of mixed microbial biofilms in vivo (Laufer et al., 2011). Join us in MDCL 2230 at 3:30pm on Thursday June 9th for a microbiome double whammy.
