Speech Title: Bacterial Quorum Sensing Inhibitors of plant origin and prospect of using them in the control of Infectious Multiple Drug Resistant pathogens

Speech information (Related abstract would be updated soon…):
He will speak on "Bacterial Quorum Sensing Inhibitors of plant origin and prospect of using them in the control of Infectious Multiple Drug Resistant pathogens". Quorum sensing (QS) is a process mediated via small molecules termed autoinducers (AI) that allow bacteria to respond and adjust according to the cell population density by altering the expression of multitudinous genes. QS governs numerous bioprocesses in bacteria, including virulence, its inhibition promises to be an ideal target for the development of novel therapeutics as antibiotics are no longer the magic bullets they were once thought to be. Quorum sensing inhibition or quorum quenching has been pursued as one of such novel strategies. The talk will encompass a novel alternative prospect to prevent bacterial infections by applying chemicals extracted from Indian medicinal plants that inhibit quorum sensing mechanism of the pathogens.
