Emeritus Professor of Microbiology

Prior to my retirement in 2019, our research focused primarily on the cell biology and pathogenesis of Mycoplasma pneumoniae, which causes bronchitis and atypical or "walking" pneumonia in humans. Specific areas of interest included the architecture, assembly, and function of the mycoplasma terminal organelle, mycoplasma interactions with airway glycans in colonization, modeling mycoplasma infections and persistence using normal human bronchial epithelial cells in air-liquid interface culture, and development of a nanotechnology-based biosensing platform for improved mycoplasma detection in clinical samples.
