  1. Can we fix it! Yes we can! Synthesis of Novel Quorum Sensing molecules Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry

  2. Bacteria • What are bacteria? • How do bacteria communicate with one another? • Quorum sensing

  3. Research Questions By making new signaling molecules which resemble the bacterial signaling molecule: • Will we be able to interfere with the bacterial communication? • Will a damaging agent attach to the signaling molecules so that the bacteria cells will be killed?

  4. Goal • To make several similar compounds with a variation in “R” group

  5. Methods • Overall Scheme:

  6. Why is this project important? • Would benefit the medical, sewage, and marine environment • Would offer a new approach in fighting infections
