Research overview

Our lab is interested in understanding the molecular basis of Salmonella pathogenesis, elucidating its dynamic vacuolar life cycle and targeted delivery of drugs to these vacuoles. We use a wide range of hosts spanning cell lines to higher eukaryotes like C. elegans, A. thaliana and mice to understand the host pathogen interactions. We are also interested in exploring the potential of shockwaves as therapeutics and prophylactics in various biological systems.
