Research Interests

The MacNeil lab uses the nematode C. elegans to investigate the molecular basis by which bacteria affect the health and survival of their hosts. One goal of these investigations is to reveal new strategies to reduce bacterial virulence and to develop new approaches to fighting anti-microbial resistance.
