Our focus is the detailed molecular characterization of the interaction between pathogenic mycobacteria and their target cells, the macrophages. This includes detailed studies on (i) pathogen variability to understand the macrophage response to Mycobacterium (M.) tuberculosis clinical isolates, (ii) the structural and functional characterisation of pathogen-containing phagosomes, (iii) the functional role of Wnt6 in M. tuberculosis infection and (iv) the development and use of novel in vitro screening systems to identify anti-mycobacterial compounds.
