Anna Bakardjiev MD is Associate Professor of Pediatrics, Division of Infectious Diseases and Global Health, and a member of the Microbial Pathogenesis and Host Defense program at UCSF. She is an active member of the graduate program in biomedical sciences, the director of the molecular medicine program in pediatrics, and co-director of the molecular medicine pathway for the school of medicine. Her laboratory studies host-pathogen interactions at the maternal-fetal interface with a particular focus on the pathogenesis of listeriosis. Listeria monocytogenes is a bacterial pathogen that causes febrile gastroenteritis in healthy non-pregnant adults and children. In pregnant women and immunocompromised adults L. monocytogenes can cause disseminated disease with high mortality. Infection during pregnancy leads to preterm labor, stillbirth and severe neonatal disease. The research in the Bakardjiev lab combines techniques of microbial genetics with primary human cells and tissues and relevant animal models to investigate the key processes of microbial dissemination, intracellular survival and growth, and host defenses at the maternal-fetal interface.
