Molecular mechanisms controlling the expression of genes required for bacterial virulence


Postdoctoral Fellow: University of Washington School of Medicine
Postdoctoral Fellow:  New York University School of Medicine
Ph.D.:  University of California, Los Angeles
B.S.: University of Michigan

Fields of Interest:

  • Functional Genomics and Proteomics

  • Molecular Microbiology and Infectious Disease


Research Interests:

Research in the Navarre lab is aimed at understanding the molecular mechanisms controlling  the expression of genes required for bacterial virulence.  The lab has a central focus on the genomic evolution and lateral gene transfer, which plays a primary role in the evolution of pathogens and the rapid spread of antibiotic resistance. The lab also has a growing interest in understanding the microbiota of laboratory animals.
