|Hector Aguilar-Carreno |
Interests: Entry mechanisms of highly pathogenic zoonotic viruses into mammalian cells.
|John Alderete |
Interests: The study of parasite and host cell-tissue interactions focused on
proteins that contribute to infection and disease pathogenesis.
|Kelly Brayton |
Vet. Micro. Path.
Interests: Infectious diseases, microbial genomics, mechanisms of persistence.
|Doug Call |
Interests: Evolution and persistence of antibiotic resistance; molecular epidemiology; comparative genomics, transcriptomics, and proteomics of pathogens; detection pathogens in complex matrices; and aquaculture health.
