Microbial Pathogenesis

A diverse collection of pathogenic bacteria, fungi, and protozoa are studied by these scientists. This field is interdisciplinary in scope and draws from a wide range of expertise and technology; consequently, the faculty includes members of the Departments of Medicine, Pathology, Epidemiology, Pharmacology, Biology, and Chemistry. Research efforts include studies of molecular mechanisms of pathogen-host interactions, evasion and manipulation of host immunity, signal transduction, regulation of gene expression, drug resistance, vaccine development and epidemiology of infectious diseases.
