Basic Science Research

Basic science research is anything but basic as it is continuously confirming or furthering scientific knowledge. Basic science research can then be translated or applied to patient treatments and care. The researchers in the Center for Staphylococcal Research are working towards a better understanding of staph diseases, which will provide the knowledge that will eventually lead to better diagnoses, preventions, and new treatments. Our interdisciplinary group illustrates the need to have a multifaceted, multidirectional approach to researching staph whether through the study of molecular or cellular biology, proteomics, immunology, or pharmaceutical sciences.
