Education & Research


Research Interests:
My laboratory is actively involved in the application of molecular techniques to the epidemiology and diagnosis of infectious diseases (i.e., molecular epidemiology). In addition, we are currently involved in a number of projects assessing mechanisms of gram-positive microbial resistance to antimicrobial agents with emphasis on Clostridium difficile, staphylococci, and staphylococcal diseases. We are especially interested in the impact genomics will have on these areas of investigation.
