Dr. Ernesto Fuentes is awarded a NIH grant

Dr. Ernesto Fuentes was awarded an NIH grant for his project entitled, “Regulation of Staphylpococcus aureus colonization and disease. This grant, in collaboration with Dr. Alex Horswill (Univ. of Colorado, Denver), will study the ArlRS two-compontent regulatory system. ArlRS is involved in the transition from commensal to pathogen, and our studies on this system could uncover mechanisms that could be exploited to prevent S. aureus infections.

Please see the recent manuscript entitled: “The Staphylococcus aureus ArlRS two-component system regulates virulence factor expression through MgrA” published this month in Molecular Microbiology.
