Brief description Type I interferons are used in the treatment of viral infection. However, the therapeutic potential of type I interferons for the treatment of bacterial infection is not known because we do not fully understand their functional roles and regulation in hosts infected with bacteria. My proposal aims to investigate the role of one family of regulatory proteins, known as interferon-regulatory factors, in the host defense against foodborne bacteria.
