Dr. Karthika Rajeeve
Website
1. Department of Biomedicine, Aarhus University, Aarhus 8000, Denmark
2. Rajiv Gandhi Centre for Biotechnology, Kerala 695585, India
Interests: We study the pathogenesis of chlamydia infections. As an obligate intracellular parasite, chlamydia metabolically reprograms host cells to deplete the tumor suppressor TP53, predisposing them to a tumor-micro environment. My group focuses on the infection–cancer interface and investigates how the pathogen evades the immune system.
