[140] Phagocytosis

Host-pathogen relationships

Our lab investigates the interactions between phagocytic cells and bacteria to provide new strategies for the treatment of infectious and immune-mediated diseases.



Our current research can be divided into 3 variations on the theme phagocytosis:

  • How cells phagocytose bacteria
  • How cells kill ingested bacteria
  • How pathogenic bacteria escape phagocytic cells and mount infections
