Nancy Keller, PhD

Position title: Medical Microbiology & Immunology and Bacteriology



The Keller lab research focuses on the genetic regulation of fungal secondary metabolism and development and how aberrancies in these processes affect pathogenesis. Her research led to the establishment of fungal secondary metabolite cluster motifs and the identification of conserved global regulators of secondary metabolism in fungi and how these molecules are involved in cross talk with the immune system of animals or defense pathways of plants.
