Projects in the laboratory:

1.     We have identified novel pathways that regulate cholesterol mediated mycobacterial persistence and we are looking for highly motivated graduate students who are interested in understanding the biology of mycobacterial persistence. More specifically, the research focus will be to characterize and understand the roles of few identified Mtb genes in mycobacterial persistence.

2.     My lab will be interested in generating a carbon source independent in-vitro model of mycobacterial persistence. Briefly, since we have some preliminary understanding of how persisters are generated, we would like to utilize our understanding to rewire Mtb signaling by generating recombinant Mtb that mimic “persisters”. The strain thus generated would be characterized by identifying persister specific transcriptional and proteomic signatures. This model would than be used for screening antimicrobial compounds specifically targeting persisters.

3.     Since Mtb is an obligate intracellular pathogen, it has to adapt very quickly to intracellular niche and neutralize any host-mediated insults. We would also be interested in exploring the contribution of host in helping long-term survival of the pathogen inside the host. Briefly, the potential host targets genes will be knocked out by CRISPR and the role of specific host genes would be deciphered by analysing the growth of mycobacteria in these KO cell lines.
