"A cytoskeletal perspective on Giardia host attachment and colonization"

Dr. Scott Dawson is an Associate Professor in the Department of Microbiology and UC Davis. The Dawson lab studies the role of cytoskeleton in the pathogenesis of the protozoan parasite Giardia intestinalis and the genomics of protists. The lab uses molecular biology, microscopy, genomics and bioinformatics in their studies. Some of the foci include Giardia cytoskeleton and attachment to host cells, flagella assembly and division, and genomic studies of protozoans.
