The Woychik and Husson laboratories were awarded a new NIH grant beginning 12/1/2016. The grant supports research to study how the bacterium that causes tuberculosis in humans, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, has the unique ability to evade being killed by our immune system and is able to persist for long periods of time in its host as a latent infection.
M.S. student Heather Weiland has officially joined the laboratory. Heather will join the team studying the molecular mechanisms underlying latent tuberculosis.
