Maria Letizia Di Martino has been awarded 20,000 € by ESCMID (European Society for Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases). The project - Revealing the Shigella flexneri epithelial invasome in a human enteroid infection model - will provide a global map of the Shigella virulence factors required for infection of the human “mini-intestine” model. This will form a solid basis for future molecular studies of human shigellosis, a research field thus far hampered by the lack of physiological infection models.
