Research Focus

Karl Klose, Ph.D. is a Professor at the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) and an Adjunct Professor at Texas Biomed. Dr. Klose is a microbiologist studying bacterial pathogenesis — how bacteria cause disease — particularly, Vibrio cholerae, the bacterium that causes cholera, and Francisella tularensis, the bacterium that causes tularemia, or rabbit fever. F. tularensis is classified as a select agent with the highest potential to be used as a biological weapon. He and his collaborators seek to answer key questions about these bacteria in order to help develop effective vaccines.
