About this research project

This animation by Colleen Paris, extends the work of Felix Son by examining the actin cytoskeleton from the perspective of pathogenic invasion. Here we look at Chlamydia, Rickettsia, and Lysteria as 3 examples of pathogens that leverage the structure of actin in order to gain access to the cell, or for motility once inside the cell.
