The 24th Midwest Microbial Pathogenesis Conference held at the University of Notre Dame in August 2017 has been featured in the June issue of Journal of Bacteriology. 

The cover includes images from the laboratories of Civil & Environmental Engineering & Earth Sciences (CEEES) Professor Joshua Shrout and Notre Dame Biology Professor Patricia Champion. Shrout and Champion's research was also highlighted in the issue, as well as other researchers who attended the conference.   

Shrout's topical review article is titled, "Assessing Travel Conditions: Environmental and Host Influences on Bacterial Surface Motility," and focuses on conditions that prevent or encourage surface motility in bacteria.

Champion's research article is titled, "Esx Paralogs Are Functionally Equivalent to ESX-1 Proteins but are Dispensable for Virulence in Mycobacterium marinum." 
The article explores the Mycobacterium marinum pathogen. 

Additionally, Shrout and Champion co-authored a meeting review of the conference.
