Dr. Hiller’s research program examines microbial molecular mechanisms associated with disease. She studies how the human pathogen Streptococcus pneumoniae switches from commensal coexistence to pathogenesis. To address this overarching question, her lab focuses on three interconnected areas: cell-cell communication, adaptation to host-environments, and genomic variability and lineage-specific adaptations.
