Our research is focused on understanding the regulation of antimicrobial peptide expression by the vitamin D pathway. When immune cells called macrophages encounter a pathogen and become activated, the vitamin D pathway is turned on, leading to the induction of the cathelicidin antimicrobial peptide if serum levels of vitamin D are sufficient. We have shown that this mechanism is conserved in humans and primates but not in other mammals. Therefore, we developed a transgenic mouse that carries......

Aleksandra Sikora

Aleksandra Sikora, PhD. Associate Professor of Pharmacoproteomics in the College of Pharmacy at Oregon State University (Corvallis, Oregon, USA) is a microbiologist with experience in bacterial pathogenesis, proteomics, and high-throughput screening for identification of new antimicrobials. She currently focuses on proteomics-driven antigen mining to develop gonorrhea vaccine(s) as well as identification of new antibiotics targeting drug-resistant bacterial infections.

Dr. Sikora rece......

Chrissa Kioussi

Chrissa Kioussi investigates the molecular strategies responsible for organ development and regeneration. Her work has uncovered roles of genes that regulate cell fate, organ architecture and body homeostasis. She uses mouse models to understand the molecular mechanisms and signals that embryos normally use to make muscle. These strategies link regulated gene response to other cellular response systems during ......

My research program blends studies of synthetic methods with the total synthesis of natural products and other complex molecules. The goal of our work is to develop new strategies in synthesis and then apply them to the elaboration of targets where particular structural features present a significant challenge.

Luiz Bermudez

The laboratory of Dr. Bermudez is interested in the mechanisms of the pathogenesis of intracellular bacteria, with focus on mycobacteria.  Mycobacteria are a common cause of infections in humans and animals.  Mycobacterium tuberculosis infects a third of the world population and is responsible for 3 million deaths annually.  Mycobacterium avium, an environmental bacterium, commonly causes disseminated disease in patients with Acquired Immu......
