SMB faculty researchers Mike Konkel and Rey Carabeo have garnered new grants to fuel their work on infectious bacterial pathogens.  Dr. Konkel secured a new R21 grant for two years investigating Campylobacter jejuni, a leading global cause of bacterial foodborne disease.  Dr. Konkel’s grant supports work using a unique pig model of human disease that was developed in his SMB lab.  Dr. Carabeo was funded through a new RO1 grant for almost $2 million over 5 years focused on characterizing the effects of Chlamydia’s protein TarP on human cells during infection.  Congratulations to Drs. Konkel and Carabeo!
