The Eric Pamer Lab

Our laboratory investigates innate and adaptive immune responses to infection by pathogenic organisms. We have established several model systems to characterize innate immunity and antigen specific T cell responses. We use the intracellular bacterium Listeria monocytogenes to investigate early defense against bacterial infection.
