Kim Orth studies how virulence factors expressed by bacterial pathogens cause disease. Studies using microbial genetics, biochemistry, cell biology and bioinformatics on effectors from Yersinia and Vibrio bacteria have uncovered many mechanisms that bacteria use to subvert host signaling pathways, including the discovery of novel protein modifications. Her team’s work has uncovered unexpected strategies that bacteria use to survive and spread. Additionally, her work has also helped reveal normal signaling pathways. She has received a variety of prestigious
awards, including Burroughs Wellcome Fund Investigators in the Pathogenesis of Infectious Diseases, ASBMB Merck Award, election to the American Academy of Microbiology, and recent election to the National Academy of Science. Kim is a Howard Hughes Medical Institute Investigator.
