  • Enhanced Detection System for Healthcare-Associated Transmission of Infection (EDS-HAT)
    R01AI127472
    09/26/2016 – 08/31/2021
    To establish the Enhanced Detection System for Healthcare Association Transmission (EDS-HAT), which uses routine WGS of bacterial pathogens and machine learning and data mining of the EMR to dramatically increase capacity to detect healthcare-associated outbreaks.
  • University of Pittsburgh Training Program in Antimicrobial Resistance (T32)
    T32AI138954
    05/16/2019 – 04/30/2024
    To establish the University of Pittsburgh Training Program in Antimicrobial Resistance, a multidisciplinary training program for pre-doctoral and post-doctoral trainees. The program will focus on translational science with the goal of having our trainees transition to postdoctoral fellowships or independent research careers. We plan to use this T32 to produce the next generation of scientists with the training, creativity, and resources to be future leaders in the critical field of antimicrobial resistance.
  • ABCs Component of the Maryland EIP Site
    U50 CK000487
    01/01/2020 – 12/31/2020
    This project, based at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, is a collaborative effort between Johns Hopkins, University of Maryland, and Maryland department of Health and Mental Hygiene. The Maryland Emerging Infections Programs (EIP) site is part of national a network that is funded and coordinated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The main mission of the EIP Network is to conduct surveillance for studies of emerging infectious disease and to evaluate methods for their prevention and control. (ongoing since 2005)
  • Analyzing Adult Pneumococcal Vaccination Implementation in the Underserved (Sub to Smith R01)
    R01 AI116575
    06/01/2020 – 05/31/2024
    Pneumococcal disease continues to be an important public health problem, particularly in underserved minorities. This project will evaluate vaccination strategies to improve vaccination protection in this group
  • South Africa-Pittsburgh Public Health Genomic Epidemiology Research Training Program (SAPPHGenE)
    D43TW011255
    03/26/2019 – 12/31/2023
    A public health genomic epidemiology research training program in South Africa in the areas of bacterial pneumonia, invasive bacterial diseases, and fungal infections. This will be accomplished by an expert, multidisciplinary team of research mentors at the University of Pittsburgh, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, and the National Institute for Communicable Diseases in Johannesburg, South Africa. The ultimate goal of the program is to prevent and control these diseases, some of which are vaccine preventable and all which are major causes of morbidity and mortality in South Africa and globally
