RESEARCH INVOLVES

Characterizing the molecular pathways in the assembly of the surfaces of bacteria; identifying within these pathways targets for new therapeutics active against antibiotic-resistant bacteria; determining the ways in which bacterial surface structures are altered during the course of infection.

RESEARCH RELEVANCE

A new class of therapies could be introduced to deal with the problem of bacteria that are resistant to known antibiotics.
