Faculty Contact Information
The Fang laboratory studies a broad range of topics in bacterial pathogenesis, with a particular focus on phagocyte-pathogen interactions. Current projects focus on mechanisms of coordinate transcriptional regulation of virulence genes and antimicrobial resistance, and the pathogenesis of human typhoid and paratyphoid fever.
I regard diversity as essential for excellence and am committed to fostering a safe, welcoming, diverse and inclusive laboratory environment.
Prof. Fang is a physician-scientist with more than thirty years’ experience studying bacterial genetics and pathogenesis. As an active educator throughout his career, he has directly mentored 63 undergraduate, graduate and post-graduate trainees, many of whom who have gone on to successful independent careers in biomedical research. He is the founding program director of the UW Interdisciplinary Training Program in Bacterial Pathogenesis.
