Research Interests

Using a combination of structural (X-ray crystallography) and functional analyses, our laboratory determines the mechanistic basis of critical communication events during bacterial pathogenesis. This facilitates development of a novel class of anti-infectives that do not kill bacteria but target these communication events to curb bacterial behaviors leading to disease. For more information, please visit PARASHAR LABORATORY WEBSITE.
