Summary This project will use cutting edge biochemistry, microscopy, microbiology and eukaryotic cell biology to explore the impact of intracellular bacterial pathogens on mitochondrial function.
Intracellular bacterial pathogens employ specialised secretion systems that transport virulence proteins, termed effectors, into the host cytosol. These effectors can subvert normal eukaryotic functions allowing the pathogen to create a replicative niche and evade killing. Some effector proteins target the host cell mitochondria where their functions remain largely unknown. This project will use cutting edge biochemistry, microscopy, microbiology and eukaryotic cell biology to explore the impact of intracellular bacterial pathogens on mitochondrial function.
