David Niesel, PhD

Dr. Niesel is currently assessing the expression of virulence genes/proteins and functional assays for virulence factors/properties. The goal of this work is to document and characterize S. pneumoniae, gene or protein expression differences, or differences in virulence properties, which occur during animal infection. He is also investigating changes to the S. pneumoniae proteome and global transcriptional activity after extended passage in the laboratory. Dr. Niesel is the Chair of the Department of Microbiology & Immunology at UTMB.
