  • Megan T. Baldridge Lab: The Baldridge Lab studies the interactions of the intestinal commensal microbiota with viral and bacterial pathogens.
  • Jacco Boon Lab: The Boon Lab is interested in understanding the mechanisms and determinants involved in pathogenesis of the influenza virus.
  • David B. Clifford Lab: The Clifford Lab is working to improve therapeutics for neurological disorders, with a particular focus on neurological complications of HIV.
  • Michael S. Diamond Lab: The Diamond Lab focuses on the interface between viral pathogenesis and the host immune response in mosquito-borne human pathogens such as Zika, West Nile and Dengue virus.
  • James Fleckenstein Lab: The Fleckenstein Lab focuses on the molecular pathogenesis of enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (ETEC), a major cause of mortality in young children due to diarrheal illness in developing countries.
  • Daniel E. Goldberg Lab: The Goldberg Lab uses biochemical, genetic, genomic, cell biological and physiological approaches to study the malaria parasite.
  • Jeffrey P. Henderson Lab: The Henderson Lab uses interdisciplinary approaches to better understand infections caused by Gram negative bacteria and to identify new therapeutic strategies.
  • Robyn Klein Lab: The Klein Lab focuses on the pathogenesis of neuroinflammatory diseases of the central nervous system (CNS).
  • George B. Kyei Lab: The Kyei Lab is focused on characterizing the HIV reservoir and HIV replication, as well as identifying the molecular factors required for HIV reactivation in latently infected
  • Mark J. Miller Lab: The Miller Lab uses advanced imaging approaches to study the cellular mechanisms of immunity during infection and inflammation.
  • Makedonka Mitreva Lab: The Mitreva Lab focuses on the development of new and existing computational tools to enable structural and functional characterization of microbial systems and communities.
  • Jennifer A. Philips Lab: The Philips Lab is studying the molecular mechanisms of tuberculosis to better understand host immunity and bacterial pathogenesis.
  • Haina Shin Lab: The Shin Lab is examining immune responses against viruses that establish persistent infections in their hosts.
  • Gary J. Weil Lab: The Weil Lab is devoted to research on filarial nematode parasites that cause important diseases in animals and humans (lymphatic filariasis and onchocerciasis), mainly in the tropics
