Bio

My research focuses on viral and bacterial infections in infants and children. Research has included the development of new diagnostics, the clinical validation of diagnostics, epidemiology of infectious diseases using molecular diagnostics, and improving health services, including public health, through accurate diagnostics and informatics. The primary pathogens I study include enteroviruses, respiratory viruses particularly influenza and bacterial pathogens including Streptococcus pneumoniae and Neisseria meningitidis. I have several active NIH and CDC grants that support my work. I mentor undergraduates, medical students, residents, fellows and junior faculty conducting clinical and translational research. I am the Director of several Career Development Programs in Pediatrics. I have mentored over 90 trainees and junior faculty, the majority women and under-represented minorities.
