This is the web site for the laboratory of Dr. Runyen-Janecky in the Department of Biology at the University of Richmond. The long-term research goal in our lab is to identify and characterize the physiological processes that are important for intracellular bacteria to survive and multiply within eukaryotic cells. Past research in the lab used Shigella flexneri (see lab mascot and real image below), a human intracellular pathogen, as a model system. Current reserarch in the lab uses Sodalis glossinidius, an intracellular symbiont of the tsetse fly, as a model system.
