Marie-Louise Landry MD

Professor of Laboratory Medicine and of Medicine (Infectious Diseases); Director, Clinical Virology Laboratory; Director, Medical Studies; Vice Chair, Laboratory Medicine

Research Interests

Viral Load and Correlation with Disease; Impact of Laboratory Diagnosis on Clinical Management; Molecular Methods; Direct Immunofluorescence


Research Summary

My interests focus on the rapid detection and quantitation of viruses for clinical diagnosis and the impact of new test methods on patient management. Ongoing projects include optimization of rapid assays for respiratory viruses and herpesviruses and development of real-time molecular methods for viral diagnosis.
