Respiratory microbiology, respiratory and fecal microbiomes, interspecies interactions, bacterial adaptation during chronic infection.
I am a clinician-scientist; clinically, I am a pediatric pulmonologist, focused on the health and disease of children’s lungs. One of the most vexing problems I face in this clinical role is how to treat chronic lung infections, particularly those suffered by people with cystic fibrosis (CF), chronic endobronchial tubes, and non-CF bronchiectasis. Because of my frustration with these infections, my laboratory efforts concentrate on how to better study and treat these devastating infections. My hope is to halt the lung diseases many chronic infections generate, and to improve the lung health of children worldwide.
