Genetic control of TLR signaling pathways
Underlying host and viral factors that limit broadly protective humoral immunity to inform next-generation influenza virus vaccine design.
Interactions between commensal fungi and adaptive immune responses in the gut microbiome that impact fungal commensalism, fungal virulence, and inflammatory bowel disease.
We are interested in uncovering the molecular mechanisms required for bacteria to cause infection and are focused on the intestinal pathogen Shigella flexneri
