The Rosenzweig lab is bacterial pathogenesis lab that focuses on host-pathogen interactions as well as bacterial stress responses. The two organisms studied in the Rosenzweig lab are Yersinia pestis KIM strain as well as Streptococcus pyogenes. Various mutant strains are characterized in cell culture infection assays as well as in their ability to cope with other environmental and/or physical/mechanical stresses.
The Rosenzweig lab is well furnished with research equipment including: a microcentrifuge, an electroporator for bacterial transformation/DNA manipulation, DNA agarose gel tank, Western blot capabilities, Tissue culture incubator, an inverted light microscope, bacterial incubator, orbital water bath shaker , thermocycler, and a -80 degrees C freezer. Additionally, we have access to and often use a cell culture hood/biological safety cabinet in a nearby common cell culture laboratory. Finally, for work characterizing low shear mechanical stress, our lab also possess a High Aspect Ratio Vessel (HARV) bioreactor which cultivates cells under a simulated microgravity emulating growth of microbes in space.
