The Division of Molecular Microbiology conducts basic and applied research related to bacterial, parasitic and viral diseases that are of major public health concern. Our research is focused to two broad areas:
- Understanding the fundamental principles of microbial pathogenesis.
- Development of next-generation antimicrobial drugs.
Our major topics of interest include HIV, tuberculosis, malaria, mechanisms of antimicrobial resistance, enteric diseases, toxins, and diagnostics. Student training and development are integral components of faculty research.
