Research summary

Bacterial infections of the respiratory tract which lead to localised or disseminated disease are a considerable health and financial burden globally. Our research focuses on understanding the interplay between bacteria (mainly colonisers of the respiratory tract) and their human host during colonisation and progression of disease. By understanding key mechanisms used by bacteria to interact with human cells and tissues therapeutic targets can be identified.

Specific interests

  • Molecular basis of receptor targeting by mucosal pathogens which colonise the human nasopharynx and oropharynx. Principally studies focus on Neisseria meningitidis, Moraxella catarrhalis and Haemophilus influenzae.
  • Interactions of Neisseria meningitidis with serum components.
  • Epithelial cell responses to neisserial ...
