I studied roles of the complement system in the pathogenesis of F. tularensis. This deadly bacterium is given the highest research priority classification by the CDC as a Category A Select Agent. Most successful human pathogens have evolved molecular mechanisms to subvert, inactivate, or exploit proteins of the complement system. Working in biosafety level 2 and 3 laboratories, my dissertation project was fourfold: 1) to identify complement components activated by specific bacterial surface moieties expre...
