Lewis, Amanda
Assistant Professor of Molecular Microbiology

Research Interest:
The Lewis lab integrates bacterial genetics, analytical glycobiology, comparative phylogeny and infection models to study the evolution and functions of complex carbohydrates during infection. Mechanistic and clinical studies focus on pathogens of the female reproductive tract.

Lodge, Jennifer
Professor of Molecular Microbiology

Research Interest:
Signal transduction, cell wall biosynthesis and resistance to oxidative and nitrosative stresses  in the pathogenic fungus, Cryptococcus neoformans.

Sibley, L. David
Alan A. & Edith L. Wolff Distinguished
Professor of Molecular Microbiology

Research Interest:
We are using comparative genomics and genetics to define virulence determinants in the model intracellular parasite Toxoplasma gondii. and to examine the cellular and molecular basis of motility and host cell invasion.

Stallings, Christina
