Interdisciplinary & Emerging Signature Programs
Allergy, Immunology & Infectious Disease.
 
Research Summary

The primary focus of our laboratory is how facultative intracellular bacteria control expression of genes required for virulence. We currently study how Bartonella henselae regulates expression of genes required to mediate the unique vascular proliferation that is observed in patients infected with this bacterium. In addition, we are studying gene regulatory circuits required for virulence in Francisella tularensis.
