About Us

The Smith Lab @ Duke MGM investigate the host-pathogen interactions that underlie tuberculosis infection. 

Smith Lab 2022

Check out how we combine diverse Mammalian and Mycobacterial genetics to map the host-interacting with pathogen loci (hipQTL) across the genome. Read our papers on the Collaborative Cross and BXD mammalian genome panels.

Want to learn more about new bacterial genetic technologies? Oyinda, Erin and Clare wrote a mini-review as part of the IAI special series from early-stage investigators. Check it out here.

We collaborate with a number of labs within MGM and Integrative Immunobiology. Check out new collaborative papers on host susceptibility loci with the Coers Lab and on ancient Mycobacterial effectors with the Tobin lab.
