Our lab is using molecular microbiological, molecular genetics, biochemical, and proteomic based approaches to define how bacteria interact with and respond to changes in the environment. Our goal is to understand the signal transduction pathways bacteria use to (1) sense environmental conditions, and then (2) to alter the proteins displayed on their cell surface. Since these cell surface changes enhance survival, we will develop strategies to interrupt these adaptive pathways, thereby controlling bacterial growth or infection.
