The Host-Pathogen Biology Group

The Host-Pathogen Group is a diverse group of scientists with expertise in microbiology, virology, immunology, and bacterial pathogenesis. Scientists in this group conduct research on host-pathogen interactions with a focus on biothreat viruses and bacteria. Projects include studies of host immune responses during infection using a combination of in vitro and in vivo approaches, vaccine and therapeutic development with an emphasis on broad-spectrum efficacy, viral evolution and cross species transmission, and pathogen characterization and survival in the environment.
