About Daniel Kirienko
I study the pathogenic interaction between Pseudomonas aeruginosa (a Gram-negative bacterium) and Caenorhabditis elegans (a small, soil-dwelling nematode). More particularly, I and my colleagues search for novel therapeutics that will aid immunocompromised patients and those with nosocomial infections.Publications
