Laboratory of Host-Pathogen Biology

Studying the biology of mycobacterial infection.

Mycobacterium tuberculosis is a bacterial pathogen and the leading causes of death due to infectious disease. In 2022, an estimated 10 million people fell ill with tuberculosis (TB). By investigating the mechanisms that enable this bacterium to cause TB and evade antibiotics, the Rock lab aims to lay the foundation for new therapeutic strategies to improve control of this pandemic.
