The department’s primary goal is to develop analysis of the interface between microorganisms and cells/tissues.

The Cell Biology and Infection Department is chaired by Chiara Zurzolo.

To understand infection mechanisms we need to explore in depth how cells function both during infection and in the balance between the commensal flora and host. Three clear priorities are identified:

  • stepping up efforts to integrate cell biology, cell microbiology, genomics and imaging with a view to improving investigation of bacterial, viral, parasitic and prion infections;
  • developing expertise in tissue microbiology using increasingly sophisticated in vivo imaging technologies to improve understanding of infection at the whole-animal scale;
  • developing synergistic interactions with immunologists and cell biologists in other departments.

These activities are closely related to the development of new techniques such as imaging, image analysis, genomics and post-genomics.
