diagnostics, novel antibiotics, new uses for existing antibiotics, antibiotic prophylaxis, probiotics, and the microbiome.
Laboratory researchers are working on various projects including novel diagnostics, antibiotic resistance, antibiotic allergies, antifungal treatment, and differences among strains of pathogenic bacteria.
