Freshwater Colloquium: Fish Pathogens
March 6 @ 4:30 pm - 5:20 pm
Mark McBride will present “Flavobacterium Fish Pathogens: Motility, Protein Secretion, and Virulence” as part of the School of Freshwater Sciences spring colloquium. The theme of this semester’s colloquium is Trends in Aquaculture: Meeting the Challenge of Feeding a Changing World.
This presentation is open to the public.
Attend in person at the Great Lakes Research Facility or virtually via Zoom at https://wisconsin-edu.zoom.us/j/94051113961?pwd=OWlGUkgrSkFuQnhsTm1Kd21xb2IrZz09
McBride is a Distinguished Professor, Biological Sciences, UWM College of Letters and Sciences. McBride is a molecular microbiologist who studies how bacteria move and how they secrete proteins. Recent research in his lab focuses on Flavobacterium fish pathogens that cause disease outbreaks in the wild and in aquaculture settings. Protein secretion, and active movement of Flavobacterium cells, both contribute to disease. The identities of the secreted proteins that allow flavobacteria to cause disease are being explored in an attempt to understand and control these deadly fish pathogens.
