John Leong, MD, PhD, Adviser
My prior experience includes infectious disease and antimicrobial targets and drug discovery, microbial biodiversity, marine microbiology, gene expression, protein production, and molecular genetics of bacteria and bacteriophages. I am now interested in bringing my varied experience to understanding the pathogenic mechanisms of enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli O157:H7, Streptococcus pneumonia, and the Lyme disease spirochete Borreliae burgdorferi.
