UC Merced professor studies how disease spreads, resistance to drugs

Professor Clarissa J. Nobile, who studies microbial communities, has discovered mechanisms that allow a potentially fatal biofilm to spread and resist drugs. Her research was published last month in mBio, an open-access online journal by the American Society for Microbiology. Nobile said the findings could help in developing treatments for fungal biofilm infections, specifically those formed by Candida albicans.
