The Coyne Lab currently studies pathways by which microorganisms cross cellular barriers, primarily the epithelium that lines the gastrointestinal tract on placental trophoblasts. Her lab’s long term goal are to identify pathogen- and host-specific therapeutic targets to prevent or treat microbial infections and ultimately to alleviate the morbidity and mortality caused by these infections.
