Kennda Lynch believes certain microorganisms in Pilot Valley must be using perchlorate as energy source. Because no one knows what these microbes are, Lynch will spend the next year finding out. Supporting her work is a recently announced Ford Foundation fellowship.



Despite the wealth of information about how bacteria communicate, little is known about how quorum sensing proceeds during an infection. Georgia Tech researchers describe for the first time how close bacteria need to be to “talk” in an environment similar to chronic infection in cystic fibrosis.
