Position title: Mechanisms of resistance to infection


The primary interest of our laboratory is studying mechanisms of resistance to bacterial infection. Under this broad heading major projects include: 1) Host, bacterial and environmental factors that influence the pathogenesis of gastrointestinal listeriosis and salmonellosis; 2) Immunotoxicology – adverse effects of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons on bone marrow cells and hematopoiesis; 3) Bovine respiratory disease - focus on the effects of Mannheimia haemolytica and its leukotoxin on the activities of bovine leukocytes and lung cells; 4) Histophilus somni – adverse effects on bovine endothelial cells as it relates to vasculitis.
