The main goal of our research group is to better understand host-pathogen interactions in TB on the molecular and cellular levels, from the discovery of novel virulence genes in Mycobacterium tuberculosis to the identification of immune mechanisms involved in host defense against the pathogen, with the overall objective of proposing better strategies to control disease.
