Kimberly Kline on polymicrobial infections

NCCR External Seminar

We are delighted that the next NCCR Microbiomes Seminar will be given by Kimberly Kline, Professor in the Department of Microbiology and Molecular Medicine at the University of Geneva.

The Kline lab studies bacterial virulence factors that contribute to colonization and infection by Enterococcus faecalis and related pathogens. The lab uses in vitro and in vivo infection models to investigate mechanisms of pathogen-host interactions, especially in the context of biofilm formation.  

In 2014 Kimberly Kline was awarded the ICAAC Young Investigator Award by the American Society of Microbiology, and in 2016 the Teaching Award from the Nanyang Technological University in Singapore. Prof. Kline joined the University of Geneva in 2022.

Kimberly Klinewill give an NCCR talk entitled: ‘Pathogenesis of polymicrobial biofilm-associated infections’. The seminar will take place on 10 October 2023, from 12h00 to 13h00 CEST. You can access this public seminar through this Zoom link.
