Our lab is focused on identifying and studying the molecules and pathways that play critical roles during the interaction of bacterial pathogens with their hosts. We examine the host/pathogen interaction from both angles: the virulence mechanisms employed by bacteria to cause disease, and the mechanisms employed by the host to resist infection.
