Alaniz, Robert Assistant Professor

Positions

The overarching research goals of my lab are directed toward understanding important host and microbial mechanisms that instruct the development of pathogen-specific effector, memory, and protective T-cell immunity after infection with intracellular bacteria. Another research theme in the lab focuses on membrane vesicles (MVs): discrete spherical nano-assemblies produced from the outer membrane by Gram-negative bacteria.
