What We Do

The lab's specific research effort falls into three broad categories: Host-Pathogen Interaction, Cell Biology and Developmental Biology. For each, we have several questions that we wish to answer although, as you’ll see, studies in one frequently inform (or even provide outright answers to) another. Please note that what follows is obviously not meant to be a comprehensive review and I exclusively focus on what we have published as examples of the questions we ask and the approaches we take. In other words, this website is not intended as a review of the literature; our field is populated by many talented people and they have contributed much to the questions I outline below. I encourage any reader of this site to look at any of the many recent reviews and certainly do not want to give the impression that we work in a vacuum of one lab; the truth is anything but!
