Linden Hu, MD, Adviser
My research focuses on understanding how Borrelia burgdorferi, the causative agent of Lyme disease, is able to establish a long term infection in an immune competent host. Specifically, I am interesting in how B. burgdorferi evades the innate immune system. I am using Tn-seq to characterize the relative fitness of mutants in a transposon library to identify genes responsible for innate immune evasion.
