Summary We are interested in host-pathogen interaction particularly, how bacterial and viral pathogens utilize complex molecular machines to mediate infection. We use a range of structural (e.g. cryoEM, X-ray crystallography etc) and cell biology techniques to elucidate the structure and function of these molecular machines in situ, in their native context, inside ‘living’ cells.
