Opportunity at U.S. Army Medical Research & Materiel Command (AMRMC)
Walter Reed Army Institute of Research, Armed Forces Research Institute of Medical Sciences-Bangkok
Studies focus on the diagnosis, pathogenesis, epidemiology, immunology, and therapy of enteric infections. We are interested in the development of rapid methods to detect and characterize enteric pathogens, the application of molecular methods such as AFLP and RAPD as alternatives to serotyping in epidemiologic studies, the study of host immune responses to enteric infections, the development of an animal model in which to study the effects of enteric infections, and the identification of mechanisms of antimicrobial resistance. Organisms of primary interest include Campylobacter, Shigella, Diarrheagenic E. coli, Norovirus, Rotavirus, and Cyclospora.
