Microbial Pathogenesis

Researchers are actively engaged in identifying and characterizing virulence factors produced by pathogens, including toxins, adhesins, and secretion systems, to comprehend their roles in causing disease. By integrating systems biology approaches and mathematical modeling, they can predict pathogen-host interactions and disease outcomes. The session offers a comprehensive overview of the most relevant innovations and research in this field.

Genomic studies are shedding light on the evolution and emergence of bacterial and viral pathogens, providing valuable insights into their pathogenicity and potential for pandemic spread. Investigations into the role of microbial dysbiosis in chronic diseases, such as inflammatory bowel disease, are advancing our understanding of host-microbe interactions in disease pathogenesis. Concurrently, research into host genetic factors that influence susceptibility to infections is providing insights into individual variation in disease severity and progression.
