The Zhong lab has been using chlamydial infection in the female genital tract as a model to investigate the mechanisms of inflammatory pathology and pathogenic fibrosis. Recent studies from the Zhong lab have revealed a novel complex relationship between the genital and GI tract Chlamydiae. The tissue site of the first exposure to Chlamydia may determine the outcome of the Chlamydia-host interactions. See video for illustration.
