Research Areas

The general view that underlies research in the Madhani laboratory is that conflicts within and between organisms have driven (and continue to drive) the evolution of cells and organisms in profound ways.

Currently, we investigate how RNA-guided mechanisms seek and silence deleterious repeats and transposable elements in the genome and how an important human fungal pathogen manipulates its mammalian host.
