Research Summary: 
We study host and pathogen mechanisms that regulate growth of Mycobacterium tuberculosis and other mycobacteria. We are using proteomic and genetic tools to probe host responses to infection in macrophages and animal models.

Autophagy restricts Mycobacterium tuberculosis during acute infection in mice.
