Area of research: Microbial pathogenesis
Our lab work in the area of exploring the molecular mechanism of persistent infection which underlie asymptomatic host pathogen coexistence in human pathogen Helicobacter pylori. It is the beginning to understand the bacterial and host factors that are responsible for host- pathogen interactions during persistent infection of H. pylori. Currently, my lab are focusing on the different toxins present in H. pylori and their cognitive partners and their role in pathogenesis. Recently, our lab have discovered the presence of many putative toxin-antitoxin pairs in H. pylori genome. Our research aim of future is to enrich the knowledge of asymptomatic host pathogen coexistence and facilitate the better diagnostic against H. pylori.
