Mycobacterial Disease, Vincent Escuyer, Ph.D.

The Clinical Mycobacteriology Laboratory at Wadsworth Center performs a full range of conventional and molecular testing procedures for rapid and accurate identification and characterization of Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the agent of tuberculosis.

Zoonotic Diseases, Jan E. Conn, Ph.D.

Dr. Conn is trained as a medical entomologist, cytogeneticist, and evolutionary geneticist. Research in Dr. Conn's laboratory focuses on the evolutionary genetics and phylogeography of several species of Neotropical malaria vectors.

Cellular & Molecular Basis of Disease, Rajendra K. Agrawal, Ph.D.

Dr. Agrawal’s laboratory uses advanced structural biology techniques to study cell’s protein synthesizing machinery, the ribosome, in order to discover potential new antibiotic/drug targets.

Translational Medicine, Division Director, Erasmus Schneider, Ph.D.

Scientists working in the Division of Translational Medicine examine human immune responses, cell division, and protein synthesis, which, when defective, cause diseases.

Mycobacterium Disease, Todd Gray, Ph.D.

Dr. Gray's lab has developed a non-pathogenic Mycobacterium smegmatis and described a novel form of conjugal DNA transfer between strains of M. smegmatis that relies on the activity of the same secretory apparatus (ESX-1) which is required for pathogenicity in M. tuberculosis.
