Research Summary

Host cells have a sophisticated arsenal of cytosolic sensors that monitor for microbes that gain access to the cytosol. Cyclic dinucleotides have emerged as important molecules that are sensed during infection in the cytosol. My work in the Woodward lab focuses on the characterization of a new bacterial cdN-specific cytosolic sensor that we named RECON.
