Mission The microbial world is fiercely competitive and microbes have evolved to occupy almost every ecological niche including multicellular organisms. The diversity, sophistication, and range of molecular interactions between microbes and their hosts are remarkable. Our research ranges from work on the molecular mechanisms of diseases caused by pathogenic bacteria to the interactions between and beneficial bacteria and their human or animal hosts. The group combines expertise in cell biology, immunology, microbiology and functional genomics to further our understanding of the molecular interactions occurring in the cross-talk between microbes and their hosts.
