The Barczak laboratory is interested in understanding the TB host-pathogen interface as a means to developing novel therapeutic approaches to treating TB.
We currently have three areas of interest:
- Identifying and characterizing mycobacterial factors required for survival and virulence in cellular models of infection, with a particular focus on virulence lipids.
- Developing novel approaches to screening for compounds with anti-TB activity in the host.
- Using mycobacterial genetic tools to explore the host response to infection.
