Research Information:

My research group is interested in understanding the interplay established between bacteria and their host during infection.

We are currently focusing on the enteropathogen Shigella flexneri, which use a Type Three Secretion Apparatus (T3SA) to inject some of its proteins inside human intestinal cells. Our main interests are:

  1. T3SA functioning and regulation;
  2. bacterial strategies for hijacking the biological processes of the host;
  3. bacterial and host adaptation at play during infection. Our long-term objective is to identify novel therapeutic avenues to treat infectious diseases.

Keywords: gastrointestinal infections caused by bacteria of the Shigella genus and other Escherichia coli.
