Current OSU Appointments

Professor-Clinical, Pathology

Clinical Interest

Clinical Pathology, Infectious Disease, Medical Microbiology, Public Health

Continuing Education, Extension, and Other Courses Taught

I enjoy participating in Continuing Education for lab technologists. I participate in lab week activities every year where I present a challenging topic on new, emerging technologies that can have a profound effect on clinical microbiology diagnostics.



I also present annually, in the month of February or March, a "Year in Review" to the lab personnel in clinical microbiology where I summarize all the accomplishments for the entire division that includes the various specialties within clinical microbiology for that year. This is accompanied with lunch.

Master/Graduate Advising

Partnership Narrative

Clinical Microbiology is an integral field that interphases many disciplines. Over the years, I have had the opportunity to collaborate with several colleagues from Infectious diseases, pharmacy, internal medicine and veteniary sciences. Collaborative projects have included the following:1. In collaboration with the antimicrobial stewardship program and pharmacists, we have studied the impact of implementation of rapid technologies (such as real-time PCR) on patient care and hospital cost savings.2. In collaboration with infectious disease physicians, I have been involved with a number of projects on MRSA studying the epidemiology of Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus including characterization of epidemiologic, molecular, geographic, and phylogenetic features. A novel MRSA strain ST239 was identified as circulating in central ohio associated with increased antibiotic resistance and epidemic potential.3. In collaboration with infectious disease and pharmacy, we have studied antibiotic resistance: synergy testing and testing of untraditional antibiotics (e.g. minocycline)for efficacy against multi-drug resistant micro-organisms4. In collaboration with veterniary sciences, I have studied genetic elements of multi drug resistance in human strains of A.baumannni. Phenotypic and Genotypic Characterization of Clostridium difficile of Swine and Human Origin was undertaken as part of a masters thesis project. C.difficile isolates were recovered from stool specimens from swine and humans. Isolates were compared using antimicrobial resistance profiles, antimicrobial resistance gene detection, toxin gene detection, RFLP-Toxinotyping, and PFGE.
