Imaging Infection at High Resolution

“If we don’t see, we don’t believe it”. We truly believe in the strong potential offered by the last imaging technologies. In this project we thus use confocal microscopy to investigate the spreading of bacteria within their host, in live conditions and with high resolution. Also, we tag specific bacterial protein with fluorescent probes and follow their fate intracellularly. This hide and seek will help us finding new molecular targets to stop the infection process.
