Research Summary

My goal is to provide a platform to diagnose patients with serious bacterial infections prior to organ damage and to risk stratify those who are sick. This is accomplished through Emergency Department screening protocols and with biomarkers. We are currently enrolling patients in the Emergency Department and measuring unique proteins in the plasma to determine if these markers can predict those patients who will get sick so that we can intervene earlier.

Our group is also evaluating the microcirculation of various organs in mice with sepsis using Sidestream Dark Field Microscopy.
