The goal of our research is to understand how contact-dependent growth inhibition (CDI) systems work and to identify their role in bacterial biology. Our vision is that through increased understanding of cell-to-cell interactions between bacteria we can learn more about bacterial biology, ecology and pathology as well as employ these systems in changing bacterial behavior and propagation.
