Introducing MIMS-EMBL group leaders: interview with Barbara Susanne Sixt (Link to interview).



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.
