Research Statement:

My lab is involved in the detection and characterization of resistance mechanisms to different antibiotic families in both Gram-negative and -positive pathogens. Elucidation of genetic platforms and enzymatic activity are part of that molecular characterization. Development of genetic and phenotypic tests is also part of our work through new technologies applied to diagnosis.
