Personal Statement

I am an Associate Professor of Pharmacy and an established clinical scientist with extramural support from public and private sources. My laboratory has developed several cohorts of patients with infectious diseases using data resources from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Department of Defense (DOD), and the Veterans Health Administration (VHA). We have also partnered with a Practice Based Research Network (PBRN) of primary care medical practices for community-based participatory research involving patients with MRSA skin and soft tissue infections. We have used these cohorts effectively for innovative clinical and translational research.
