Sex differences in bacterial infections of the intestinal tract

With a focus on infectious disease, Dr. Lawson studies novel formulations for delivery of vaccines and antimicrobials, as well as bacterial pathogenesis. Through her work in this area, she developed a particular interest in determining sex differences in severity of bacterial infections of the intestinal tract. A better understanding of sex differences in disease sensitivity will allow for design of more informed and personalized treatment and preventive options for patients suffering with diarrheal disease and other toxin-mediated conditions caused by bacterial pathogens.
