Since its discovery, the regulation of living tissue behavior through the flow of electrochemical species has fascinated scientists. Now, in the emerging field of biofilm electrophysiology, scientists reveal that even simple bacteria residing in communities use cell-to-cell electrochemical communication to coordinate population-level behaviors.
In this webinar, Dr. Gürol Süel, from the University of California, San Diego, will discuss the latest developments in biofilm electrophysiology and share his latest research on ion channel-mediated electrical signaling within bacterial biofilm communities. Through his research, Dr. Süel forms an exciting and unexpected connection between micro- and neurobiology. He highlights the critical role of electrical signaling in biofilms in the coordination of metabolic states and the formation of mixed species biofilms.
