Postdoctoral ResearcherDecember 2012 --- April 2014
my work was focusing on interaction of epec (enteropathogenic e. coli) with host intestinal epithelial cells and the mechanisms by which epithelial function is altered as a result of these infections. i was assessing the impact of effector Proteins produced by epec on tj structure, function and polarity complexes, by infecting Cell lines using different effector combinations. developing a new effectors delivery system based on lentiviral particles.
