Project summary

Liz is currently working in the School of Life Sciences at the University of Warwick. Her research focuses on understanding nutrient uptake and metabolism in Mycobacterium tuberculosis with the hope that this will lead to the development of novel therapeutic or diagnostic strategies. To achieve this, her lab is bringing together a range of biochemical, chemical and genetic approaches to determine the molecular mechanisms involved in the transport processes of essential nutrients by this pathogenic organism.
