Academic Interests:

My research and clinical interests are focused on Helicobacter pylori and its association with and role in promoting gastric cancer. Research in my lab has investigated how H. pylori interacts with gastric epithelial cells to alter cell turnover and cause cell cycle dysregulation using co-culture systems and animal models with validation in clinical patient samples. More recent efforts have focused on H. pylori vaccine development to prevent infection, examination of local H. pylori eradication success rates, and exploration of molecular diagnostic testing of antibiotic resistance to guide therapy after treatment failure.  We are currently recruiting patients with active H. pylori infection into a clinical study to compare molecular diagnostic testing of antibiotic resistance in gastric biopsy versus stool specimens
