Areas of Research

Biochemistry and Molecular Biology of Lyme Disease
Work in my laboratory focuses on several aspects of the organism causing Lyme disease, including: 1) The molecular mechanism of recombination and DNA repair events driving antigenic variation, using genetic and biochemical approaches. 2) Studies on the mechanism by which the pathogen crosses the endothelium to escape from the vasculature and invade surrounding tissue.
