Therapeutic options available for Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infections are limited because MRSA has acquired resistance to multiple antibiotic classes. I am thus interested in identifying novel treatment options for the treatment of infections caused by MRSA as well as bacteria of public health importance.
