Research Lab Results for antimicrobials

Eric Nuermberger, M.D.
Research in the Eric Nuermberger Lab focuses primarily on experimental chemotherapy for tubercu...losis. We use proven murine models of active and latent tuberculosis infection to assess the effectiveness of novel antimicrobials. A key goal is to identify new agents to combine with existing drugs to shorten tuberculosis therapy or enable less frequent drug administration. We're also using a flow-controlled in vitro pharmacodynamic system to better understand the pharmacodynamics of drug efficacy and the selection of drug-resistant mutants during exposure to current agents. view moreResearch Areas: pharmacodynamics, chemotherapy, infectious disease, antimicrobials, drugs, antibiotics, Streptococcus pneumoniae, pneumonia, tuberculosis
Sara Cosgrove LabPrincipal Investigator:
Sara Cosgrove, M.D.
The Sara Cosgrove Lab researches how infections with antibiotic-resistant bacteria affect patie...nts. We are interested in the methods needed to make sure patients receive the best possible antibiotic treatment, including the development of tools and programs to promote the rational use of antimicrobials. We also study the epidemiology and management of S. aureus bacteremia. view moreResearch Areas: epidemiology, antimicrobials, antibiotics, resistant organisms
