Function of Uncharacterized Genes of Acinetobacter baumannii
Program Director: Samuel I. Miller
Project Period: 07/01/13 – 06/30/18
This center was created to investigate the role of previously uncharacterized genes of A. baumannii in its ability to cause human disease. The goal of our research is to find unexploited therapeutic approaches by elucidating the role of uncharacterized genes of A. baumannii in this organisms mechanics of pathogenesis, resistance and persistence.
