Welcome to the Hultgren Lab

The Hultgren lab is a highly collaborative group using diverse techniques, both within the lab and with many distinguished outside basic science and clinical researchers.

We are blending multiple scientific disciplines to elucidate bacterial and host mechanisms that determine the onset, course and outcome of interactions between the host urinary tract and bacterial pathogens.

Our work is changing the way UTIs are evaluated, re-shaping models of bacterial infections in general, and spawning development of novel vaccines and anti-microbial therapeutics to diagnose, treat and prevent UTIs and their sequelae.
