Invasive Bacterial Pathogens Laboratory
Head: Renato Morona
My laboratory conducts research into a number of enteric and invasive bacterial pathogens with a focus on the role of bacterial cell surface molecules in bacterial pathogenesis.
My Current Research Interests are:
PhD and Honours Projects
A number of challenging projects are available to interested PhD and Honours students. These projects will be in the general area of Shigella flexneri virulence factors, with an emphasis on the structure and function of IcsA, on lipopolysaccharide (LPS)O antigen biosynthesis proteins, and bacterial cell biology. Project information is available in the Honours and PhD page of the website.
Other Pathogens we have Studied Include:
Salmonella enterica Typhi
Salmonella enterica Typhimurium
Vibrio cholerae O1
