Michael Donnenberg is a Professor of Medicine at the University of Maryland School of Medicine. His laboratory is primarily interested in interactions between pathogenic Escherichia coli and host cells. They use combined molecular biology, cell biology and biochemical approaches to gain insight into the processes by which pathogenic E. coli... read morecause disease. The goal is to identify and characterize bacterial factors that are involved in interactions with host cells and to identify cellular mechanisms triggered by interactions with bacteria. It is anticipated that these studies will impact not only our understanding and approach to infectious diseases, but also our appreciation for normal and abnormal cellular physiology.
