Johnny Peterson, PhD

The majority of Dr. Peterson's lab's current research is focused on the evaluation of drugs, monoclonal antibodies, and vaccines that block the pathogenesis of anthrax. Through collaboration, Dr. Peterson is investigating the molecular mechanism(s) by which the anthrax lethal factor kills macrophage cells designing and synthesizing more effective inhibitors of anthrax lethal factor and edema factor, as well as enterotoxins that stimulate intestinal adenylate cyclase. Ultimately, this research will advance the treatment or prophylaxis against inhalation anthrax and selected diarrheal diseases.
