Dario Zamboni is the head of the Laboratory of Innate Immunity and Microbial Pathogenesis at the Medical School of Ribeirão Preto, University of São Paulo (FMRP/USP).The Laboratory investigates the interactions of intracellular microbial pathogens with host cells using an multidisciplinary approach involving Immunology, Cell Biology and Microbiology techniques. The pathogens under investigation are Legionella pneumophila, Coxiella burnetii and Leishmania spp. The focus of the research aim to investigate how the immune system detects microbial pathogens and operate to clear infection and how the intracellular pathogens subvert the host cell functions to replicate intracellularly and cause disease.
