Marc W. Mittelman of Harvard Universitys School of Engineering and Applied Sciences will present Biofilms and Biological Fouling in Occupational Settings. The event is part of the Department of Environmental and Occupational Health 2015 Invited Speaker Seminar Series. Biofilms are communities of microorganisms that are associated with animate and inanimate surfaces. Their discrete associations with surfaces are mediated by extracellular polymeric substances (EPS), which act to stabilize the attachment process and can participate in localized physicochemical reactions. Biofilms represent the predominate mode of life--as opposed to planktonic growth--for microbial communities in nature, medicine, and industry. Microbial activity within biofilms, while often beneficial for processes such as waste treatment and food production, can lead to biological fouling, or biofouling. Mechanical disruptions, microbially influenced corrosion, deleterious xenobiotic transformation reactions, and the creation of pathogen reservoirs have all been associated with biofouling. The event will be held in the 4th floor conference room at 950 New Hampshire Ave., NW. All are welcome to attend. A light lunch will be provided, and RSVPS to Kallista Bernal ( are strongly encouraged.
