Prof. Wolf-Dietrich HardtField of research

The research in Wolf-Dietrich Hardt’s group is focused on the molecular mechanisms of infectious diseases. This includes the evolution and adaptation of pathogens to new hosts and the molecular function of specific bacterial virulence factors. Currently, his lab has a strong focus on Salmonella Typhimurium pathogenesis and how these bacteria employ Type III secretion systems to cause disease.
 
Specific Contribution to Research in InfectX
The group will perform genome-wide RNAi screens to identify human proteins involved in bacterial entry of Salmonella (“trigger” uptake mechanism).
