Aria has accepted a faculty position in the Department of Infectious Diseases and Immunology at University of Florida.  With an ideal set of collaborators and resources, the department and it's associated institutes are a perfect fit for the Eshraghi Lab's vision to characterize fundamental cell biology mechanisms that support bacterial pathogenesis.  Initial experiments will focus on how secreted bacterial effector proteins promote pathogenesis.
