He works with vectors and vector-borne pathogens to span research across both basic and applied biology. This reflects Dr. Foy' diverse interests and training, from his undergrad at Notre Dame in medical entomology, anthropology and ecology and graduate school training at Tulane in molecular and cellular biology, immunology and tropical medicine research. His current interests lie in defining concepts that govern blood meal acquisition and digestion by vectors, and parasite and arbovirus transmission from vertebrates to vectors and vice versa. Dr. Foy is also very keen on using that knowledge, combined with the epidemiological concepts that define vector-borne diseases, to practically control their transmission.

He was previously a Senior Fellow in the Department of Microbiology at the University of Washington, School of Medicine (Seattle, WA), and earned his Ph.D. conducting microbiology research at the University of Wisconsin (Madison, WI). Highlights of his research career include the pioneering construction of metagenomic libraries to study antibiotic resistance and identification of novel biomolecules from unculturable bacteria. In addition, Dr. Borlee has patented quorum-sensing inhibitors for the development of anti-virulence drug leads. Dr. Borlee’s discovery of a biofilm-induced bacterial adhesin that binds exopolysaccharides and reinforces biofilm structural integrity has been further developed by him into a c-di-GMP biosensor to identify and evaluate antibiofilm therapeutics.

He was the founding director for CSU’s One Health Institute. He formerly served as an Assistant Vice President and Head of Biosystem Informatics and Human Microbial Ecology at the Nestlé Institute of Health Sciences in Lausanne, Switzerland. Sobral also was the founding executive and scientific director of the Virginia Bioinformatics Institute at Virginia Tech, where he was a Professor of Plant Pathology, Physiology and Weed Science. His research at the Bioinformatics Institute focused on symbiosis from a biological perspective and cyberinfrastructure from a computational perspective. He has contributed to symbiotic systems, infectious diseases, computational biology, bioinformatics, software development and cyberinfrastructure. He also served as Vice President for Scientific Programs at the National Institute for Genome Resources in Santa Fe, N.M., where he shifted from laboratory science to integrated computational and laboratory sciences. Sobral is a systems thinker with significant scientific and executive experience building and managing research institutes, from strategy co-creation through implementation/evolution. He has been successful over last 30 years leading interdisciplinary teams with the goals of scientific discovery and informatics infrastructure development, deployment and evolution. In the last five years Sobral has increasingly sought to develop social infrastructure and social innovation for the benefit of society (communities) in pursuit of health cultivation, shifting from a pathogenesis viewpoint to a salutogenesis framework. His objective is to optimize his capacity to impact the health of residents in Colorado communities, with a special focus on Latinx, using participatory action research frameworks.
