Pictures from the European Tribute to Stanley Falkow
On May 28-29, 2019, the European Academy of Microbiology (EAM) sponsored a Microbial Pathogenesis Symposium that took place at the Institut Pasteur in Paris, France, with European and international participants paying tribute to the life and career of renowned microbiologist Stanley Falkow (1934-2018).
Some pictures of the event are below. Read a wrap-up of the event here.
Vibrio anguillarum is a marine bacterium that can cause vibriosis in many fish and shellfish species. Although phage therapy has been proposed as an alternative treatment, the defense mechanisms against phage infection in V. anguillarum and their impact on host function are not fully understood. Here, we examined phage defense strategies in four V. anguillarum strains during exposure to the broad-host-range bacteriophage KVP40.
