Research Projects in the Lab

The three active projects in my lab seem to me quite distinct, but they do fit a common theme: figuring out new ways to treat bacterial diseases. In one project, we're making progress in isolating new antibiotics from soil microorganisms. In another project, we're working out a new treatment for a bacterial disease (acne) that uses bacteriophage (viruses) that specifically kill the microorganisms responsible. The third project is a study of the virulence genes of the intestinal pathogen Shigella flexneri, in which we hope to develop chemotherapeutic agents which can render these bacteria avirulent. Apart from these three main projects, we've worked on a variety of topics, including the efficacy of various disinfectants and the ability of bacteria to survive UV irradiation.

Students in my lab have presented results of their contributions to these projects at the Eastern Colleges Science Conference, at the CCSU Undergraduate Research Day, and at other regional conferences. I've collected all the abstracts for these presentations on one Student Research Presentations page. Come and see the students' work!
