Research Interests

Bacterial pathogens of the cystic fibrosis lung
“As a member of the Frank lab, I study the pathogenesis of Gram-negative bacteria including their Type III secreted effectors. This research allows me to utilize techniques from a wide range of disciplines.  I have always been interested in the molecular mechanisms underlying bacterial colonization and infection. Here at MCW, I have the opportunity to pursue my interests in a highly collaborative environment.”
