Rates of Death in Pseudomonas aeruginosa Infected Corneal Cells
This summer, I will be working with my post-doc researcher to attempt and study rates of cell death in Pseudomonas aeruginosa infected corneal epithelial cells. We will compare and contrast the different effects that different strains of Pseudomonas aeruginosa have on the corneal cells to learn the details of how this bacteria enters, infects and kills cells. Because most of the research will now be remote, I will be working more on the data analysis portion of the research, studying microscope images and quantifying the data within them.
