PI: Barbara Susanne Sixt, Ph.D., assistant professor

The Sixt lab strives to uncover the hidden protective potential of pathogen-suppressed cellular defense pathways, to identify the molecular determinants of host defense and pathogenic countermeasures, and to find means to disturb their balance to the benefit of the host. Our main experimental model is the interaction of human cells with the obligate intracellular bacterial pathogen Chlamydia trachomatis.
