Welcome to the Luallen Lab

We study natural host/pathogen interactions in C. elegans


About Our Lab

The Luallen Lab is in the Biology Department at San Diego State University. We study innate immunity and host/pathogen interactions in the genetic model organism Caenorhabditis elegans. We use a mixture of ecological sampling, genetics, comparitive genomics, biochemistry, microbiology, and microscopy to understand the interaction and coevolution between hosts and their natural pathogens.
