My research has focused on transplant recipients. I have studied the clinical outcomes of extensively drug-resistant Gram-negative bacteria in the transplant setting, specifically novel beta-lactam/beta-lactamase-inhibitor combinations and mechanisms of microbial resistance to these agents. I am also involved in clinical research in SOT recipients, via the American Society of Transplantation ID Community of Practice. I am overseeing HIV-to-HIV organ transplantation at UPMC as part of the multicenter HOPE trial, which aims at determining the safety and efficacy of transplanting an HIV-infected organ into an HIV-infected recipient. I have a special interest in immunotherapy and fecal microbiota transplantation for the management of infectious diseases.
