Research Projects

We employ X-ray crystallography and electron microscopy, as well as biochemical, biophysical and microbiologic approaches to tackle projects related to bacterial cell wall biosynthesis, secreted and surface-associated virulence factors, and secretion systems.


Cell wall biosynthesis
Secretion systems
Virulence factors & bacterial immunity
  • Virulence factors and pilus components
  • Cell wall biosynthesis PBPs
  • Secretion systems and virulence factors
