My work began in Boston during my Infectious Diseases fellowship at the New England Deaconess Hospital, where I benefited from the outstanding research mentorship of Bob Moellering, George Jacoby and George Eliopoulos. During that time I developed my dual interests in enterococcal molecular genetics and the molecular genetics of extended-spectrum beta-lactamases in Klebsiella pneumoniae. I then moved to Cleveland where I collaborated and learned much from both Dave Shlaes and Robert Bonomo. My career has also benefited significantly from a highly productive collaboration with Michel Arthur from the University of Paris. I am equally grateful to the students, fellows and laboratory technicians who worked tirelessly to complete the laboratory work and contributed substantially to the scientific thought process.
