Brian completed his Doctor of Pharmacy in 2003 and then completed his fellowship in Dr. Michael Rybak's Laboratory in Detroit, MI. He has been involved in anti-infective research for over a decade. His research interests involve investigating of mechanisms of resistance in multi drug resistant bacteria and pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic modeling of antimicrobials to suppress the emergence of resistance. Brian's interest in antimicrobial resistance mechanisms involves the utilization of novel hollow fiber infection models and investigation of bacterial genetic factors which contribute to drug resistance. Brian has published over 100 peer-reviewed manuscripts, scientific abstracts or book chapters.
