The network of co-authors in scientific papers accounts for 56 collaborators. I am interested in host-pathogen interactions during M. tuberculosis and HIV infection of host immune cells. These pathogens manipulate host cells at different stages of infection inhibiting cellular processes and resisting antimicrobial mechanisms. I have been focusing my studies on finding new mechanisms and drugs that allow us to manipulate the host cellular response to infection while also targeting the pathogen itself. This dual approach to infection reduces the probability of the emergence of new drug-resistant strains and improves conventional therapy.
