Brief description Programmed cell death can be beneficial or detrimental depending on circumstances. This delicate balance is most obvious during an infection. The host tries to limit the spread of a pathogen by initiating programmed death in infected cells but excessive death particularly in uninfected cells is catastrophic. It is essential to have a thorough understanding of the interplay between cell death mechanisms so we can overt pathological outcomes and this is the focus of our research.
