The limiting speed of the bacterial flagellar motor

2016 Annual UC Berkeley Microbiology Student Symposium


May 6, 2016
9:00am to 10:00am
Berkeley, CA


The Microbiology Student Group at UC Berkeley welcomes you to join us for the 17th Annual Microbiology Student Symposium (MSS) on Friday, May 6, 2016 at the David Brower Center in Berkeley. This year, our keynote speakers are Victoria Orphan from Caltech and Micheal Laub from MIT.

The MSS provides a forum for students researching all topics in microbiology to present their research to an engaged group of students, scientists, and members of the general public interested in microbiology. In addition, attendees will have the opportunity to present their microbiology-inspired art and engage in open dialog about how microbiology and creative pursuits can positively influence each other during the reception.

I am interested in using simulations and data from single-molecule biophysics experiments to understand molecular motors, such as the bacterial flagellar motor (which allows bacteria to swim!) and the Fo motor of ATP synthase (which allows cells to have energy!).
