Ana Eulalio established her independent research group at the Institute for Molecular Infection Biology (IMIB), University of Würzburg (Germany) in 2012, and moved to the Center for Neuroscience and Cell Biology (CNC), University of Coimbra (Portugal) in 2017. As of January 2023, she joined the Department of Life Sciences, Imperial College London, as a Reader in Cellular Microbiology. The research of her group is focused on studying various aspects of the complex interaction between host cells and bacterial pathogens (e.g. Salmonella Typhimurium, Shigella flexneri, Staphylococcus aureus), including the role of microRNAs and the impact of bacterial intracellular lifestyles on pathogenesis. This is achieved by applying a combination of unbiased, genome-wide systems biology approaches, including RNA-sequencing and high-throughput functional screenings, with molecular and cellular biology approaches.
