Shari Duarte was busy this summer with her SURCO funded research project, “Exploring Detergent Effects on S. flexneri Invasion Pasmid Antigen C.” She studied the bacterial pathogen Shigella flexneri, that, once infected, causes shigellosis—something about 360,000 people in the US are infected with each year.
