Biography

My clinical, administrative, and research interests include the diagnosis and management of healthcare-associated infections, especially Clostridium difficile infection. I am the co-founder and medical director of the University of Michigan Fecal Microbiota Transplantation (stool transplant) program for recurrent Clostridium difficile infection. My primary research goal is to investigate how biochemical, microbiological, and clinical factors can help clinical decision-making in healthcare-associated infections, and I hope to ultimately integrate these factors into robust risk-prediction algorithms for use by clinicians. I am funded by the NIH and CDC on studies pertaining to C. difficile infection, the effect of antibiotics on the gut microbiota, sepsis, and infections from Gram-negative bacteria, including multi-drug resistant organisms, such as Klebsiella pneumoniae.
