    Tiny Conspiracies: How Bacteria Communicate with Each Other



    World-renowned molecular biologist Bonnie Bassler, Ph.D., is a Howard Hughes Medical Institute Investigator, and the Squibb Professor and Chair of the Department of Molecular Biology at Princeton University. She joined the Princeton faculty in 1994. Dr. Bassler is the recipient of numerous scientific awards and honors.

    The research in her laboratory focuses on the molecular mechanisms that bacteria use for intercellular communication, a process called quorum sensing. Dr. Bassler’s research is paving the way to the development of novel therapies for combating bacteria by disrupting quorum-sensing-mediated communication.

    A member of the National Academy of Sciences, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and the National Academy of Medicine, among many other scientific societies, Dr. Bassler is a passionate advocate for STEM studies and for diversity in the sciences. She also is actively involved in and committed to educating lay people in science.
