Welcome to the Weber Lab

Located in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology in the Carver College of Medicine.

Our research aims to elucidate how obligate intracellular pathogens, such as Chlamydia trachomatis and Orientia tsutsugamushi, subvert host defense mechanisms to establish their unique replicative niches.
