Vibrio cholerae research @ Hammer Lab

The Hammer Lab at Georgia Tech studies how bacteria sense and respond to their environment. Recently we started investigating Type VI secretion systems and how V. cholerae use T6SS to invade and maintain their niche in both the environment and in human hosts.

Predict Type VI secretion systems

T6SS acts like a hypodermic needle, delivering toxins across the membrane into a neighboring cell.
