Abstract: AGN feedback is often invoked in galaxy evolution, as a key physical mechanism to self-regulate star formation and blackhole accretion.  Is this mechanism truly effective?  How to tell?  I will describe a series of new experiments designed to use the ISMproperties of quasar host galaxies to test the efficiency of AGN feedback.  I will also introduce new methods to estimate the starformation rate and star formation efficiency in quasar host galaxies, which impact models of galaxy quenching.  The ISM and starformation properties of quasars provide key insights into the role that black holes play in the lifecycle of galaxies.
