  • Interactions
  • My laboratory is interested in how microbes influence human health, both in the context of host-pathogen and host-commensal interactions. (duke.edu)
  • chlamydial
  • Finally, genetic ablation of LDs negatively affected generation of C. trachomatis infectious progeny, consistent with a role for LD biogenesis in optimal chlamydial growth. (duke.edu)
  • manipulation
  • These observations point out to Chlamydia-mediated manipulation of LDs in infected cells, which may impact the function and thereby the protein composition of these organelles. (duke.edu)
  • inflammation
  • As this is an inflammation usually caused by a bacterial agent, treatment consists of medication based on antibiotics , according to the antibiogram of this pathogen, and anti-inflammatories for pain. (invitra.com)
  • Molecular
  • For many pathogens, and certainly for most commensal microbes, the molecular basis of how host and microbial factors contribute to a beneficial outcome for us, is poorly understood. (duke.edu)
