Djamila joined our group for her Master’s degree internship wanting to study more the cellular aspect of host-pathogen interaction. She studied the consequences of inhibiting Chlamydia trachomatis’ Type III Secretion System on the development of the bacteria. For her PhD project, she will focus on metabolic changes that occur upon Chlamydia trachomatis infection. Her aim is to determine whether the pathogen actively modifies the host metabolism and the means used to do so.
