The molecular physiology of Streptococcus pneumoniae during sepsis (2009–2010)

The project will determine the way in which pneumococcus changes its properties when it invades the bloodstream of the human host. Since these changes are linked to sepsis then this new understanding will provide information that can be used to manage and control acute pneumococcal infection.
