Research Activities

The bacteria Pseudomonas aeruginosa is an opportunistic pathogen in humans causing severe and sometimes life-threatening infections. In individuals with cystic fibrosis, a common genetic disease, Pseudomonas aeruginosa is able to infect and colonize the lungs. This chronic infection and the host's immune response progressively damages the lung tissue resulting in a loss of lung function. The long-term goal of our research is to understand how the bacteria are able to infect and colonize the lungs of cystic fibrosis patients and to develop new approaches to control these infections.
