About Deepa Patel

I am a postdoctoral research fellow in John Colliers lab collaborating in a project with Deborah Hung and the Broad institute. We are using a small molecule inhibitor and SILAC to identify factors that interact with Protein kinase R and are important in lethal factor induced pyroptosis. Subsequent coimmunoprecipitation studies have verified the screen and identfied a potential interacting partner. I will be following up this result. I completed my Phd at the University of Auckland New Zealand characterising the protein-protein interactions of the Staphylococcus aureus pathogenicity factor SSL10 and its implications on the human immune system.
