Research synopsis

Enteropathogenic and enterohemorrhagic E. coli (EPEC and EHEC, respectively) are a major source of morbidity and mortality. I am involved in developing small (~15 kD) single domain antibody reagents derived from camelids such as alpacas that are directed against key virulence factors of EPEC or EHEC to prevent or mitigate intestinal disease.
