Our research looks at how both pathogenic bacteria and harmless bacteria belonging to our normal flora can control or modulate human host cell cycle regulation and progression.

Bacterial interference with cell cycle regulation

Microbial pathogens have developed a variety of strategies to manipulate host cell functions, presumably for their own benefit

Lactobacillus -in sickness and in health

It is widely accepted that lactobacilli play a major role in maintaining human health. The bacterial flora in upper respiratory tract, gastrointestinal tract, and urogenital tract is dominated by many Lactobacillus species.

Bacterial interaction with human neutrophils

Bacterial adhesion to human is mediated via the pili in several bacteria.
