Research and Teaching Interests
At present, we are working on the following major topics:
- Sodium versus proton circulation in membrane bioenergetics of pathogens;
- Design of novel anti-microbials targeting sodium pumps;
- Molecular mechanism of antimicrobial action of sub-micromolar concentrations of Ag+;
- Molecular analysis of cation-proton antiporters of the NhaP type in pathogens.
