Description: Dr. J. William Costerton, director of the Center for Biofilm Engineering at Montana State University, will give NIDCR's 18th annual Seymour J. Kreshover Lecture on Monday, Oct. 23 at 3:30 p.m. in Lister Hill Auditorium, Bldg. 38A. His lecture is entitled "Bacterial Biofilms: Controlled, Dynamic, Multispecies Communities in the Oral Environment." For some time, scientists have known that bacteria — including dental bacteria — can adhere to surfaces and form a slimy, slippery coat. These bacterial biofilms are prevalent on most wet surfaces in nature and grow in very complex multi-species communities. The formation of these communities and their inherent resistance to antimicrobial agents are at the root of many persistent and chronic bacterial infections. Recent advances in the understanding of the genetic and molecular basis of bacterial community behavior are leading to ways of manipulating bacteria in virtually any ecosystem, including the mouth.
