Research Area:

Vibrio parahaemolyticus is the leading cause of seafood-borne gastroenteritis worldwide, but its pathogenic mechanisms are poorly understood. To discover host genetic pathways targeted by this organism, we are undertaking genome-wide CRISPR/Cas9 genetic screens to identify host-factors important for infection.
