Plant and Microbial Biology Seminar: "The intersection of nutrition and infection at the host-pathogen interface"
Seminar | October 23 | 12-1 p.m. | 101 Barker Hall
Eric Skaar, Vanderbilt University Medical Center
Eric Skaar earned his B.S. in Bacteriology from the University of Wisconsin at Madison, his Ph.D. in Immunology and Microbial Pathogenesis from Northwestern University, and his M.P.H. in Epidemiology and Biostatistics from Northwestern University. His laboratory is interested in identifying the host and bacterial factors that are involved in this battle for metal during the pathogenesis of infectious diseases. They use techniques from biochemistry, molecular biology, cell biology, and chemistry to answer fundamental questions pertaining to the host-pathogen interaction.
