My laboratory is currently involved in studying autophagy and the cytoskeleton to understand how cells control bacterial infection. We have also developed the zebrafish as a model to study the cell biology of infection and therapeutic potential of targeting the cytoskeleton in vivo. Our findings should be of considerable interest for both cell biologists and infection biologists, and make a cutting edge platform for in vivo studies both at the single cell and whole animal level.
