5th Floor SPH Labs

Ongoing research in the MAC-EPID Laboratories in the School of Public Health includes studies characterizing the molecular epidemiology of common bacterial infection, e.g., urinary tract infection and pneumonia, the interactions of virus and bacteria, the role of the microbiome in human health and environment with a specific focus on biofilms. Faculty apply tools of molecular biology, epidemiology and mathematical modeling to address important public health concerns, including healthcare associated infections.

Several faculty in the Department of Epidemiology work in shared MAC-EPID laboratories located on the fifth floor of the School of Public Health. They include Betsy Foxman, Alex Rickard, Emily Martin, and Aubree Gordon.
