Research interests

Dr Joubert’s research interests involve the basic science of sexually transmitted pathogens, especially Chlamydia trachomatis.  She has a special interest in the host-pathogen interaction of this obligate intracellular bacterium with keratinocytes.  Her work involves chlamydial gene expression studies, electron microscopic evaluation of the chlamydial life cycle and the effect of the organism on the host cell and various cytotoxicity assays.  She has also been involved in the collection of recent clinical isolates of this organism from KwaZulu Natal for antimicrobial susceptibility testing and for use in pathogenesis studies.
