Josh Messinger (Bioc '14) has received funding to support his project, "Evaluation of Recombination across Chlamydia Species". The research will be conducted under the supervision of Dave Gondek.
Currently, we are using Chlamydia as a model organism to explore the relationship it takes with its host and how it creates a “hostile takeover” of the host cell. The current project that I am working on explores how these organisms may be increasing the presence of host proteins that prevent the host from dying in the Chlamydia’s presence.
