She will also be giving a short talk on her abstract, entitled “Characterizing Interactions Between Hfq and the PrrF and PrrH Small RNAs of Pseudomonas aeruginosa“. We wish Louise the best of luck next week!!!
Angie was awarded a predoctoral training fellowship through UMBC Chemistry Biology Interface (CBI) Program! Congratulations to Angie!!!
OS Lab research featured by Journal of Bacteriology
Angie Nguyen’s most recent study, demonstrating how iron impacts P. aeruginosa’s interactions with Staphylococcus aureus, was just accepted for publication by Journal of Bacteriology. P. aeruginosa and S. aureus both commonly infect the lungs of cystic fibrosis (CF) patients. Less appreciated is the knowledge that S. aureus is much more commonly identified in young CF patients, while P. aeruginosa eventually takes its…

Congratulations to Alexandria on her first lead author paper!!
Alexandria’s work on PrrF and PrrH regulation in Pseudomonas aeruginosa was just accepted for publication by Infection and Immunity! This study establishes the role of the prrF-encoded sRNAs in iron homeostasis and virulence, in particular demonstrating that the prrF locus is required for acute murine lung infection. Congratulations to Alexandria, as well as all of our…
