Host Pathogen Interactions: Structural Biology of Host-Pathogen

Host Pathogen Interactions: Structural Biology of Host-Pathogen

The objective of the Host Pathogen Interactions: Structural Biology of Host-Pathogen core group is to initiate collaborative projects that address challenges related to infectious diseases in the Kingdom and the region. This, to discover novel and efficient ways to diagnose and treat infectious diseases, taking into account the particularity of the Saudi population and environment. A particular aspect of this core group is the study with advanced structural biology tool the molecular interactions of pathogen-host.
