Using Pathogens to Decipher Genetic Variation Connecting Cell Biology and Disease SusceptibilityDespite improvements in public health, advancements in vaccines, and the development of many classes of antibiotics, infectious disease is still responsible for over a quarter of all deaths worldwide. However, even for the most devastating of pandemics, individuals demonstrate a large variability in the severity of infection. The long-term goal of the lab is to understand the ge
