Project: Research project

Project Details


The phagocytosis and destruction of microorganisms is an essential function of phagocytes that protects us from invading pathogens. This application will further our understanding of this process by further elucidating a mechanism for the destruction of phagocytosed bacteria that was unknown to science and medicine until relatively recently.
