Research Focus: Understanding host-pathogen interactions – intersection of inflammation and cell death pathways

  • Mechanisms for pathogen activation and inhibition of Innate Immunity – inflammasomes, TLRs, regulated cell death.
  • Manipulation of signaling by bacterial secretion system effectors from Yersinia and Salmonella, and subsequent host backup responses
  • Non-infectious innate immune signaling, induced by vaccines, metabolism and neuroinflammatory diseases
