The lab studies host-pathogen interactions, focusing on macrophages and Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb). Most projects in the lab today fall into one or more of the following broad topics: host pathways controlling susceptibility and resistance to Mtb; biology of Mtb in non-replicating (NR) states; and approaches to overcome the phenotypic resistance of non-replicating Mtb to most antibiotics by developing new kinds of antimicrobial molecules.
