Using the research areas and techniques described above, our long-term goal is to understand Fusobacterium and host interactions and subsequent molecular responses during colonization and infections of the mouth and colon. Our diverse array of skills allows us to answer tough questions to study this emerging oral pathogen, and we hope we will make broad and impactful discoveries to improve human health.
