Established 2023:
The Mooney lab is live!

However, this website is a work in progress. In time, I hope this space can provide you with more updated information about what we are doing in the lab. Many pages are not be fully populated.

Research Summary:
"My primary interest is in invasive bacterial infections – how they overcome the innate physical and immunological barriers at mucosal surfaces to invade the tissues and then how they evade systemic immune responses to establish a niche for replication. My current work focuses on malaria co-infection as a risk factor for invasive bacterial disease, specifically the role of coinfection in loss of intestinal integrity and disruption of neutrophil-mediated containment of Salmonella. This research has led to work in animal models and clinical cohorts (UK and The Gambia). " -JM
