Thangamani Lab

Microbial Pathogenesis and Therapeutics Research

Thangamani Lab

Each year, millions of people in the world wide suffer from multidrug resistant fungal and bacterial infections that stem from gastrointestinal (GI) tract. Though the role of gut microbiota mediated colonization resistance against enteric pathogens has been studied for the past few decades, recent developments in cutting-edge sequencing and metabolomics approaches continue to shed new lights on the colonization and pathogenesis of enteric pathogens.

The long term goal of our lab is to (i) Gain insights into the microbial and host factors regulating the colonization and dissemination of enteric pathogens and (ii) Develop novel therapeutic approaches to treat fungal and bacterial infections to combat antimicrobial resistance.

Our Story

Our lab was started in 2017 at Midwestern University, College of Veterinary Medicine, Arizona. In 2021, our lab was moved to Purdue University, College of Veterinary Medicine, West Lafayette, Indiana.
