Dr Pietro Mastroeni

My research focuses on pathogenesis and immunity to bacterial infections, vaccine development and the interactions between the immune system and antibiotic treatment. My group has developed new multidisciplinary biological and mathematical approaches that allow in-depth analysis of the complex and multifaceted interactions between bacterialvirulence genes, host cell receptors, antimicrobial functions and immune-evasion mechanisms
