Nagaraja Thirumalapura, PhD

Nagaraja Thirumalapura, PhDEhrlichioses are emerging tick-borne diseases caused by the obligately intracellular Gram-negative bacteria, Ehrlichia. My research has been focused on understanding the mechanisms of host defenses against Ehrlichia. My long-term goal is to understand the generation and maintenance of memory T cell responses during persistent ehrlichial infections, which is relevant to several other intracellular bacterial infections and for vaccine development.
