Christopher Kerantzas, MD/PhD



My clinical focus is in molecular diagnostics, mycobacteriology, and laboratory management and I have led numerous quality improvement projects in those areas. My research interests are in phenotypic heterogeneity of Pseudomonas aeruginosa, an important pathogen and model organism for antimicrobial resistance. I'm currently developing unbiased genetic screening methods to identify molecular pathways in Pseudomonas aeruginosa that exhibit phenotypic heterogeneity and contribute to pathogenesis and/or antimicrobial tolerance.
