Welcome to the Talaat Lab

The goal of the Talaat Lab is to do innovative research and create novel therapies for treating infectious diseases in both agricultural animals and humans. Our primary focus is on the development of vaccines for Mycobacterium species and coronaviruses. We also utilize genomics and single cell analyses for better understanding of bacterial virulence and persistence during infection.

Key Words: Vaccine Development, Genomics, Mycobacterium, Coronavirus, Microbial Pathogenesis, Viral Immunology, Mycobacterial Metabolism, Whole Genome Sequencing

For Prospective Students:

Over the years, the Talaat lab has been host to many exceptional high school, undergraduate, graduate, and post-doctoral trainees. Highly motivated individuals seeking to gain hands-on training in vaccine development and genomics studies will have the opportunity to explore novel approaches with relevant pathogens. If you are interested in participating in the research happening in this lab, the best way learn about availability is to contact Dr. Adel Talaat.
