About Robert

My previous research involved the diagnosis, immunoprophylaxis, and molecular pathogenesis of diseases caused by Clostridium perfringens. My role in that research has been discontinued. Current and future research will focus on applications of the principles and practices of Biosafety. The biosafety research will complement the Biosafety Concentration for the MS in Microbiology.
