Sixt Lab: Cell-autonomous immunity
PI: Barbara Susanne Sixt, Ph.D., assistant professor
Department of Molecular Biology
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.
