Extensive scientific background in immunology and infectious disease, having worked with T-cells in the context of mycobacterial infection
My lab tries to understand regulatory mechanisms of protein function, such as protein post-translational modifications and allosteric modulation, and to use the understanding to develop potential therapeutics for treating human diseases, including immune diseases.
Our lab studies Legionella infection and host interaction. Legionella are mainly environmental bacteria. Several species, in particular L. pneumophila and L. longbeachae, are pathogenic to humans Due to the development of artificial water systems, ...
