Raluca Tutulan is a recent graduate of the Biology B.Sc. program. She joined the lab in September 2012 to undertake a thesis research project (BI499) and is staying on to do graduate work starting in September 2013. Raluca's work focuses on profiling Escherichia coli and Salmonella species biofilms from environmental isolates. These studies are designed to provide us with a link between the presence of certain biofilms and their antibiotic resistance levels.
