Bacterial Pathogenesis Study Section [BACP]

The Bacterial Pathogenesis [BACP] Study Section reviews R01 applications concerned with bacterial pathogens or the pathogen side of the host-pathogen relationship.



  • Genetic, biochemical and structural characterization of the regulation and determinants of virulence and pathogenicity, including: capsules, toxins, and supramolecular structures
  • Role of bacterial behavior and developmental processes in the host pathogen interaction, including: biofilms, chemotaxis, sporulation, and stress responses
  • Mechanisms of persistence and transmission
  • Ecology of bacterial pathogens including the composition of the indigenous microbiota and its role in health and disease
  • Animal models of infection
