I am currently studying the frequency and distribution of antibiotic resistance in E. coli isolated from humans.  A particular concern of this project, which we are doing in collaboration with Drs. Alexandra Dretler and Sarah Satola from The Emory Hope Clinic is to elucidate the relationship between antibiotic use the frequency and nature of antibiotic resistant E. coli in the absence of antibiotic treatment, during treatment and in the months following the termination of treatment.
