Research Interests

The Sellin lab studies the molecular mechanisms underlying invasive bacterial gut disease. We employ comparative cell biology, organotypic tissue culture, and analysis of intact infected tissues, to unravel disease-relevant interactions between microbe and host cell within the intestinal mucosa. Our studies focus on clinically relevant pathogens within the family enterobacteriaceae (e.g. Salmonella and Shigella species), which account for hundreds of millions of disease cases annually. The ambition is that our work will form the molecular basis for future therapeutic approaches against these challenging infectious agents.
