The Jennings Lab
Multidrug-resistant bacterial infections
are a global public health threat.
Our research aims to change that.
Our laboratory studies bacterial factors that influence infection outcomes and leverages this knowledge to develop innovative antibacterial therapeutics. Our research has two focus areas: 1) Pathogenesis of biofilm polysaccharides and antibacterial vaccine development and 2) Epigenetics and phenotypic heterogeneity in drug-resistant bacteria.
