Limei Zhang is an Assistant Professor of Biochemistry at UNL. Her research addresses critical knowledge gaps in the mechanisms of survival and pathogenesis of Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the causative agent of tuberculosis which poses great threat to public health. Upon completion of the research, we expect to have a better understanding of how this pathogenic organism responds to nitric oxide stress, which is critical for its survival in the host. The outcomes are expected to offer new research directions for designing effective anti-tuberculosis therapeutics.
