Summary

The Mysorekar lab has opportunities for newly graduated Ph.D. students who seek advanced postdoctoral training in infection pathogenesis and immune responses; urinary tract infections; bacterial genetics and host response are welcome to apply for this position. These studies involve understanding the impact of uropathogenic e. coli infection on the bladder. Using mouse models, cell culture models, 3D organoid cultures, and human bladder tissues, we take a variety of approaches to understand bacterial pathogenesis in an exciting new program researching the urinary interface. We use transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics approaches to dissect the host responses to infection; role for autophagy, lipophagy, protein trafficking in this process.
