Research Assistant Professor, Microbial Infection and Immunity
Dr. Rajaram's lab is focused on understanding the innate immune response of macrophages and responses of various host factors to intracellular pathogens with a primary interest in M. tuberculosis and a secondary interest in F. tularensis. In addition, Dr. Rajaram is interested in studying macrophage signaling and especially receptors such as mannose receptor, TLRs, and PPARy mediated signaling cascades and its related immune functions. Dr. Rajaram has special interest on how small RNAs (microRNAs) regulate host cell immune functions by targeting various host protective molecules against various pathogens.
