We are interested in the chemical biology of metabolism as a mediator of the host-pathogen interaction. We focus specifically on Mycobacterium tuberculosis and its ability to both asymptomatically infect and cause disease in humans.

My lab is focused on understanding basic principles of immunity against infection and age-related changes that alter immune responses in early life. We also are interested in determining how environmental factors (maternal diet, microbiome, ...

There is a fine balance between appropriate, host-protective, immune responses and dysregulated autoimmune and pathologic inflammation. The Leifer lab investigates how immune responses are induced and regulated with the hope of developing treatments to ...
