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.

Standing on a walkway at Yellowstone National Park, I admired the hues of orange, blue and yellow in the sand of the Grand Prismatic Spring. I’m a microbiologist, and I had come to see the bacterial mats.
