Field of research
Using siRNA screens and live cell imaging, I am investigating how changes in the host signaling network upon infection with Shigella flexneri control inflammation in epithelial cells.
Specific Contribution to Research in InfectX
The group will perform genome-wide RNAi screens to identify human proteins involved in bacterial entry of Shigella (“trigger” uptake mechanism).
