Bacterial infections are a major public health challenge. We study how bacterial pathogens interact with their hosts in order to identify new targets for treatment or vaccination. We are especially interested in pathogens that cause disease in both humans and animals.

We strive to be a lab where kindness and collegiality are valued. Discrimination of any kind is not welcome, and we are especially eager to amplify historically underrepresented voices in STEM and BYU.
