    Our research focuses on the fundamental molecular and cellular mechanisms that regulate the interactions between M. tuberculosis and host cells. We aim to dissect the host cell factors that contribute to M. tuberculosis control as well as the M. tuberculosis factors that this pathogen uses to highjack host cells. To this end, we use a variety of cutting-edge imaging approaches and model systems. In this seminar, I will present some recent data from our group regarding the environments where M. tuberculosis survives in human macrophages and the barriers that these environments represent for therapy.
