Headshot of Professor Kelly Doran

Kelly Doran
Assistant Professor, Ph.D., University of California San Diego (1998)
Department of Biology Cell & Molecular Doctoral Program, Molecular Biology Master’s Program
Program Area: Molecular Microbiology
ResearchInterests: the overall interest of the lab is the study of bacterial pathogens associated with Central Nervous System disease. We examine the mechanisms by which bacteria penetrate the blood-brain barrier, in order to cause meningitis. Our studies focus on major human pathogens including Streptococcus, Staphylococcus aureus andBacillus anthracis. We seek to identify bacterial genes and gene products responsible for cellular invasion, and to characterize the host innate immune response to infection.
