I'm studying how Histoplasma manipulates intracellular trafficking in the macrophage.
I am studying the molecular characteristics of a Histoplasma virulence factor essential for macrophage lysis.
Davina Hocking Murray
Staff Research Associate - Lab Manager
I am examining the host immune response to different strains of Histoplasma.
I am studying the environmental pressures that link temperature, cell shape and virulence in Histoplasma by looking at the interaction with soil amoebae.
I manage media and glassware
Nancy Van Prooyen, Ph.D.
Histoplasma kills macrophages but doesn't survive in dendritic cells. I'm researching the mechanisms on how these to innate immune cells differ in their ability to destroy Histoplasma.
Mark Voorhies, Ph.D.
I develop and maintain Histobase, a database of functional annotations for the H. capsulatum genomes
