Scientific summary

The main research focus of our laboratory is to determine the various roles and cellular targets of bacterial toxins in host–pathogen interactions, using genetic, cellular microbiology and animal model approaches. Current studies of our laboratory are aimed at understanding the effects of bacterial toxins of uropathogenic E. coli, B. anthracis and S. aureus on cell cytoskeleton, innate immune responses and cell viability.
