Kyra’s work focuses on understanding antibiotic resistance in Neisseria gonorrhoeae through a variety of techniques, as well as an understanding of antibiotic resistance and the spread of pathogens in hospital settings.
Aditya works on understanding mechanisms of drug resistance in N. gonorrhoeae.
Katie is currently studying how selective pressures across physiological niches drive adaptive strategies in Neisseria gonorrhoeae.
Lisa is identifying genetic pathways of serum resistance in clinical Neisseria gonorrhoeae isolates.
Sky is interested in mathematical approaches to design antibiotic susceptibility tests and quantify their impact on disease burden and resistance emergence.
Tatum is investigating the genomic epidemiology of Neisseria gonorrhoeae and how local public health systems can best use genomics to slow or contain disease transmission and the rise of antibiotic resistance.
Scott is interested in developing quantitative principles for antibiotic stewardship using genomic data and mathematical modelling.
Sam’s current research focuses on using genetic approaches to understand and exploit fitness costs associated with the acquisition of antimicrobial resistance in Neisseria and Streptococcus.
Mohamad’s interest is public health microbiology and the utility of microbial genomics tools in surveillance, intervention and evidence-based strategy development. His current focus is using large-scale sequencing of Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus to study the bacterium colonization dynamics and identify genetic factors contributing to persistence.
Crista’s research focus is on the origins of biological diversity in natural populations. Her research in the Grad lab is focused on defining the genetic networks and epistatic interactions that contribute to the acquisition of antibiotic resistance in Neisseria gonorrhoeae.
Daphne is studying the evolution of antibiotic resistance in Staphylococcus aureus.
