She also worked with medicinal chemistry teams to discover six novel agents that entered human clinical trials. Her research focused on the mechanism of action of penicillin-binding proteins (PBPs) and beta-lactamases.

Research Interests:

  • define mechanisms of antibiotic resistance in multidrug-resistant Gram-negative bacteria; determine the susceptibility of resistant pathogens to new antibiotics
