Biography

The major research interest areas of the Massari lab include bacterial pathogenesis and host responses, specifically how bacteria and their components induce, modify and evade host cell responses leading to immunity and inflammation. A deeper understanding of these mechanisms will help us in designing strategies for preventing bacterial infections through development of vaccines against human and veterinary pathogens.
