Followed by a reception in the lobby of BPB.

Professor Peter Greenberg is a pioneer in quorum sensing field and coined the term “quorum sensing”. He co-authored many seminal papers in this important area of research that changed our perception of the capabilities of microorganisms and identified important regulators of virulence genes.
