The Barczak laboratory is interested in understanding the TB host-pathogen interface as a means to developing novel therapeutic approaches to treating TB.

 

We currently have three areas of interest:

 

1. Identifying and characterizing mycobacterial factors required for survival and virulence in cellular models of infection, with a particular focus on virulence lipids.

 

2. Developing novel approaches to screening for compounds with anti-TB activity in the host.

 

3. Using mycobacterial genetic tools to explore the host response to infection.
