As Assistant Professor of Pathology, I am involved in the education of residents in the Pathology residency program at MCW. I serve as Co-course Director for the CP portion of the Molecular Pathology rotation and participate in didactic and discussion sessions related to education in clinical microbiology and molecular diagnostics. I also share in the daily responsibilities of direction of the clinical microbiology laboratory including test interpretation, review of daily results, and council of technologists. In addition, I serve as Principal Investigator for numerous clinical trials involving new diagnostic assays for the identification of bacterial, viral and fungal pathogens.
