The Hung laboratory combines chemical and genomic approaches to define host-pathogen interactions and to reveal the critical pressure points of infectious disease. By using small organic molecules and systematic genetic to perturb these interactions as well as applying systematic genetic perturbations, the lab hopes to gain new insight into bacterial responses to host immunity and chemotherapy establish new therapeutic paradigms for a variety of devastating pathogens, including Vibrio cholerae, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Mycobacterium tuberculosis.
