Lab overview

Mechanisms of Chlamydia pathogenesis

A major research focus in our lab is to solve how the major human pathogen Chlamydia manipulates host cell function in order to cause infectious disease. We apply a diverse array of genetic, cellular, and molecular techniques to reveal the underlying mechanisms of pathogenesis for these highly successful bacteria.

Active areas of research:

Chlamydia functional genomics

Chlamydia–host interactions

Clinical history of Chlamydia infections
