Profile: Karin Sauer

Professor of Biological Sciences

The focus of my group is on the development and antimicrobial resistance of biofilms. Specifically, we are interested in the regulation of biofilm formation, the phenotypic changes that occur during biofilm development, the emergence of colony variants with specialized functions and the regulation of antimicrobial resistance of biofilms. In addition, we are interested in biofilm dispersion.
