Background and activities
Areas of speciality/Fields of responsibilityDuring my time as a ph.d student (2008 - 2012) I will study mycobacteria with emphasis on the interaction between the mycobacterium and its host:
- Identify and study genes involved in the mechanism of mycobacterial intracellular survival in macrophages.
- Generate new and improved tools for recombinant protein expression in mycobacteria.
