Origins of HPMI

The Host-Pathogen Map Initiative arose organically from collaborations of pathogen biology labs at UC Berkeley and UCSF with the Krogan lab to utilize new technologies to comprehensively investigate how host cells respond to infections. Comparisons of these responses have identified both common and unique host pathways that alter the balance between human and microbe.

ROLE OF HPMI AT UCSF and UCB

Brings together scientists focused on studying different pathogenic organisms in the bay area and ultimately around the world, using quantitative biological approaches

"In low-income countries, the main problems you have is infectious diseases. "
