I am interested in understanding how the gastric pathogen, Helicobacter pylori , interacts with its host. My projects are focused on elucidating the cellular and molecular mechanisms by which H. pylori triggers an innate immune response in gastric epithelial cells through the intracellular delivery of bacterial virulence factors into the host cell. Additionally, I am developing new tools for studying this host-pathogen interaction through the use of gastric organoid cell culture.
