    CIHMID/CCFI Joint Symposium

    REGISTER HERE: cornell.ca1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form  CIHMID, and the Cornell Center For Immunology (CCFI) will present a joint research symposium, open to the Cornell community. And despite the uncertainty surrounding Covid, and the Omicron variant specifically, CIHMID and CCFI are confident our joint symposium will be safe, and accessible for all attendees. As of right now our plan is to […]

  4. Metal ion competition at the host-microbe interface

    The Helmann Lab is recruiting postdocs interested in the role of metal ions in determining the outcome of host-microbe interactions. Our group investigates conserved bacterial systems required for the acquisition, storage, trafficking, and export of metal ions. Interested candidates will be able to explore the mechanistic basis of metal ion homeostasis using a variety of […]

  6. Vector Aedes aegypti, from functional genetics to ecological analyses

    Mosquitoes cause 400,000 malaria deaths and transmit viruses to hundreds of millions. The vectorial capacity of mosquitoes depends on their ability to survive infection. However, it remains unclear what key mechanisms underlie the mosquito tolerance and resistance to infection with multiple microbes (bacteria, fungi, microbiota, viruses). We are particularly interested in approaches ranging from lab controlled […]

  7. Evolution of Symbiosis

    The long-term goals served by this project are mechanistic understanding of plant disease and development of broadly effective and durable means of control. The project seeks to structurally and functionally characterize a pathogen-activated host gene that plays a critical role in disease in a major crop species, and to ascertain the potential of strategies to […]

  8. Evolution of Symbiosis

    The Moeller Lab studies the evolution of symbiosis between animals and microorganisms. Our current work focuses on vertebrates’ co-evolutionary histories with bacteria through a combination of -omics approaches, gnotobiotic and microbiology experiments, and natural history. We are recruiting highly motivated and independent postdoctoral candidates with training in genomics, population genetics, microbiology, immunology, or related fields. Candidates interested in the genetic […]

  9. Pamela Chang Lab

    The Chang lab conducts research at the interface of chemical biology, microbiology, and immunology. Our research is focused on understanding chemical communication between the gut microbiome and the host immune system.  Using both chemical and biological approaches, we develop novel chemical tools to understand 1) the metabolism of the gut microbiome and 2) important pathways […]

  10. Molecular dialogue between intestinal stem cells and microbiota

    The intestinal epithelium faces unique challenges as it is constantly exposed to the passage of ingested material including food, bacteria and xenobiotics. To maintain tissue function, the intestinal epithelium is undergoing continuous renewal mediated by intestinal stem cells (ISCs). ISC proliferation and differentiation are constantly adapted both to the microbes present and to the gut […]
