The Roberts' laboratory focuses on projects related to antibiotic resistant genes and antibiotic resistant bacteria found in man, animals and the environment. A variety of bacteria are studied from pathogenic Neisseria gonorrhoeae to opportunistic pathogens such as MRSA and VRE to environmental bacteria. The laboratory is also interested in determining if new antibiotic resistant genes such as KPC can be identified in environmental samples. Studies related to dental caries including clinical studies in both the US and Peru also engages the laboratory. Work with both human and animals samples looking for antibiotic resistant bacteria and genes and how human, animal and environmental bacteria interact with each other.
