Research Meetings
12:00pm - 1:00pm
Microbiology & Immunology Seminar Series

Anders P. Hakansson, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Microbiology and Immunology, The Witebsky Center for Microbial Pathogenesis & Immunology, University of Buffalo

Title: To be announced

Hosts: Steve Gill & Michelle Dziejman

Research Interests: My laboratory is focused on investigating the pathogenesis of the gram-positive, extracellular pathogen Streptococcus pneumoniae (pneumococcus). S. pneumoniae is one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality from respiratory tract and invasive infections in children and the elderly worldwide. Pneumococci effectively colonize the human nasopharynx and cause infections such as pneumonia, acute otitis media (AOM), meningitis and sepsis by disseminating to otherwise sterile sites.
