Alto Lab

The Alto Laboratory is interested in the cross-species communication between bacterial pathogens and human signal transduction systems

Our goal is to track the signaling dynamics of individual effectors and toxins in living cells, using a combination of fluorescent genetic reporters, microinjection of labeled bacterial proteins, and live cell imaging techniques.
