Our ultimate goals are to identify new therapeutic targets against this major pathogen, and to contribute to our broader understanding of the pathogenic mechanisms of intracellular bacteria. Current research projects include: Mechanisms of Chlamydia exit from host cells, dissemination, and immune evasion Functional genomics for Chlamydia Virulence factor discovery for Chlamydia Proteomic discovery of novel Chlamydia-host interactions Publications PubMed: PubMed BibliographyPublications: Chin E, Kirker K, Zuck M, James G, Hybiske K.
