Research at Dartmouth Medical School using Staphylococcus aureus
The following information is from the Microbiology and Immunology Department web site .

  Molecular Pathogenesis of Staphylococcus aureus :

Dr. Cheung's lab is interested in understanding the regulation of virulence factors of the human pathogen, Staphylococcus aureus.  The development of multi-resistant strains of Staphylococcus aureus is a recognized public health hazard. One area of research focuses on understanding virulence factors that allow Staphylococcus aureus to invade and persist within human pulmonary epithelial cells.
