Microbiology and Immunology


Description of Research Category

Microbiology and Immunology research at SBS spans the study of clinically and veterinary important pathogenic microbes ranging from viruses and bacteria, to eukaryotic parasites. We examine antimicrobial resistance, bacterial biofilms, microbiomes, genomic epidemiology, and host-pathogen interactions. From the host perspective, we study immune cell development and function, innate and adaptive immunity, pathogen recognition and immune evasion, and inflammation. Our research efforts contribute to worldwide efforts to mitigate infectious diseases, focusing on the development of chemotherapies, vaccines, and diagnostics.
