Nasal flora and epithelial cells

Gram positive pathogens


Research Topics

We are studying evolutionary/adaptation strategies of Gram-positive pathogens. Major research interests include population heterogeneity, and the acquisition of antibiotic resistance. The main research target is the important human pathogen Staphylococcus aureus that inhabits in our nasal cavity but can cause a variety of diseases. We are also trying to develop a new in vitro system to study the nasal environment consisting of nasal flora and host cells.
