Abstract:

Dr. Bonnie Bassler, also known as the “bacteria whisperer,” has for nearly three decades pursued her curiosity about the social lives of Earth’s smallest living organisms. She has been discovering and translating bacterial languages for quorum sensing, which allows bacteria to interact and coordinate behavior, and she has demonstrated the profound importance of those interactions in nature. From being a young professor at Princeton University to teaching, writing grants, and being recruited to be a scientific advisor to President Obama, Dr. Bassler has dealt with the imposter voice nagging in her head, figuring “what’s the worst thing that could happen?” Through her curiosity-driven and original research, Dr. Bassler has helped establish quorum sensing as so very much more than a curiosity found in a bioluminescent bacterium. She has received countless awards for her fundamental contributions to microbiology and her paradigm-changing scientific research. She has raised several generations of scientists and continues her adventure together with her lab gang, doing everything she’s always wanted: making great discoveries.
