The research objectives of the Zhong lab are to understand the mechanisms of inflammatory diseases so that intervention and prevention strategies can be developed. We have been using the upper genital tract pathology induced by lower genital tract infection with chlamydial organisms as a model to map chlamydial virulence factors and protective antigens and to determine host pathways/effectors involved in either pathogenesis or protective immunity.
Specific ongoing projects include:
Chlamydial infection of myoctyes
