New NSF award

In collaboration with MinJun Kim at Southern Methodist University, we have received a new NSF award to study how contact interactions between microorganisms and the microstructure of complex media affect swimming.  We will combine experiments using artificial bacteria and synthetic mucus with theory and modeling.   [CMMI-1760642, Collaborative Research: Controlled Investigation of Micro- and Nanoscale Contact Interactions Between Microbes and Biomaterials Using Artificial Bacteria]
