Doctor "Bill" Costerton has studied biofilms for more than 40 years. His biofilm research and prolific publishing through the decades covers many fields: medical microbiology, microbial ecology, industrial microbiology and bioremediation. For many, he's a hero for revealing a profound truism: bacteria (et al) infect two ways, in their planktonic or by biofilm state.
His research led to many medical breakthroughs, confirming that biofilms cause myriad chronic conditions: middle ear infections, kidney stones, gum disease and unfortunately many more that affect millions of people. Yet, his work also led to beneficial treatments of sewerage, industrial waste and polluted soil.
We were honored to interview him on Feb 23, 2012. This is an excerpt of a 50 minute video.
