Title :

Overcoming Multi-Drug Resistance Bacterial Infections Through Immunometabolic Control

Speaker:  Tania Wong, PhD, Postdoctoral Fellow,  Department of Pediatrics Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons, Columbia University

New York, NY

Topic:

Infection with multidrug-resistant bacteria is a major human health threat, especially given the failure of last-resort antimicrobials. This study shows that multidrug-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae promotes an immune response permissive of infection through changes in host metabolism. My research program aims to lay the foundation for the development of host-directed metabolic strategies to boost immune clearance of multidrug-resistant bacteria.
