    Role of sialoglycan binding in the pathogenesis of streptococcal endocarditis
    1R01AI177473Aug 1, 2023 - Jul 31, 2027
    Role: Co-Investigator
    Description: This project explores the mechanisms by which streptococci produce endocarditis, a lifethreatening infection of heart valves. It examines the complex interactions of these bacteria with sialoglycan sugars on host cells and proteins, and how these events are affected by the high flow conditions within the heart. This research will provide important scientific insights about how endocarditis is produced, and may lead to novel therapies.
    Engineered probes for sialoglycan detection
    NIH R01GM137458Sep 20, 2020 - Jun 30, 2024
    Role: Co-PI
    Description: This sub-award involves the production and testing of engineered recombinant sialoglycan-binding probes, and assessing whether they display the desired specificity, selectivity and functionality.
    Using streptococcal sialoglycan binding proteins to characterize MUC7 glycoforms
    NIH R03DE029516May 1, 2020 - Apr 30, 2022
    Role: Principal Investigator
    Differential recognition of sialoglycans by viridans group streptococci, and the role in infective endocarditis
    AHA 17SDG33660424Jul 1, 2017 - Jun 30, 2021
    Role: Principal Investigator
    Description: The project aims to identify glycoprotein ligands for GspB and related streptococcal adhesins in plasma and heart valve tissue, and determine how the interactions impact the propensity of streptococci to establish endocardial infections.
