B-7 Strives to Understand Emerging and Engineered Health Threats

This group specializes in studying methods to protect humans and other organisms from pathogens and disease – both naturally occurring ones and those that could be used as biothreat agents. Research areas include host-pathogen biology, microbial pathogenesis, molecular signaling, structural biology, innate immunity, bioforensics and security analysis. These research efforts can be applied to biothreat reduction and biodefense, protection of nuclear worker health and safety, advances in pharmaceuticals and general public health measures.
