The Hybiske lab investigates the pathogenesis of Chlamydia trachomatis and how this bacteria interacts with host cells at the molecular level. A major research focus in the lab is to determine how intracellular pathogens, including Chlamydia and liver-stage malaria parasites, manipulate host cell factors to promote cell-to-cell spread, dissemination, and immune evasion. Other active projects include defining virulence correlates for Chlamydia, developing novel genetic tools for manipulation of Chlamydia, and studying immune responses to disseminating Chlamydia.
