Alfredo Torres, University of Texas El Paso

Dr. Torres' lab is pursuing studies to understand the pathogenic process of Shiga toxin-producing E. coli (STEC) and other pathogenic E. coli strains, and the interaction of these pathogens with the intestinal mucosa, with most of these studies combining genetic approaches and animal model testing. Further, the laboratory has made significant progress in understanding the pathogenic mechanisms of Burkholderia mallei and B. pseudomallei, with a special emphasis in defining the immune responses to infection, allowing us to test multiple virulence factors as vaccine candidates and other therapeutic approaches to protect against Burkholderia aerosol infections.
