From your link
My research focuses on bacteria-host interactions, with a particular interest in pathogenic spirochetes. The overarching theme of my laboratory is to discover how these microbes persist and cause long-term, even lifelong, infections in their hosts.
Half of what you are taught is incorrect, but which half? What if there's another half missing?
