Infectious disease control needs to be made more “sustainable”. We need to reduce selective pressure on pathogens to evolve antibiotic resistance. We need to control infectious disease outbreaks and associated immune disorders with a better understanding of the genetic, environmental and social factors that impact disease spread and severity.

Research Area

Investigating the role in disease of both the microbe and its host (i.e immune system failure), using genomics and systems biology-based approaches
Using genomics and network analysis to characterize disease outbreaks and their environmental/social/genetic causes, and
Identifying new anti-infective and immune modulating therapies/biomarkers.
