Our faculty are cutting-edge molecular biologists with research interests in the regulation of gene expression and host-pathogen interactions. The long-term goals of our research efforts are to understand the fundamental biological principles that mediate programmed cellular responses to infection or disease so that effective therapeutic treatments can be developed.

Research in our department is both comprehensive and interdisciplinary. While our faculty members invest most of their efforts in basic research, they also extend their work toward translational studies and clinical applications.

Research in our department is divided into several categories:
