Enteric bacterial infections

Bacterial gastroenteritis remains one of the biggest killers of humanity, accounting for hundreds of millions of deaths globally. While sanitation and access to clean water have reduced the number of cases, pathogenic species of intestinal bacteria still present a significant burden, particularly in poorer regions of the world. The rising threat of antimicrobial resistance and lack of effective vaccines make both basic and clinical research on enteric infections a top priority. This Article Collection will summarize current state of research on enteric bacterial infections, host-pathogen interactions and preclinical study models, and show future directions in alleviating the burden of gut bacterial diseases.

In this Article Collection we accept articles that investigate:

  • Virulence mechanisms of enteric bacteria
  • Immunity and host-pathogen interactions in the gut
  • Microbiota effects
  • Preclinical models and clinical issues
  • Prophylactic and therapeutic interventions

Research papers, Reviews and Commentaries will be considered for publication

Papers will be published online as they are accepted

Beth A. McCormick, PhD, Professor & Vice Chair, Department of Microbiology and Physiological Systems, Founding Director, UMass Center for Microbiome Research

Dr. McCormick is a classically trained bacteriologist with a broad background and extensive experience in the study of intestinal colonization and host-microbial interactions. Her academic career has been principally committed to gastrointestinal research and she has made seminal contributions toward the understanding of how enteric bacteria (commensal, pathogenic, or probiotic) colonize the intestine and interact with the host.  Dr. McCormick is an elected a Fellow of the American Academy of Microbiology, is on the Board of Editors for the journals Gastroenterology, and Gut Microbes, and serves as member of four Editorial Review Boards. She also is a permanent member of the GMPB NIH study section, and an advisor to several private foundations.
