The goals of the Jorth Laboratory are to determine the genetic mutations leading to antibiotic resistance in chronic bacterial infections and determine the secondary effects of antibiotic resistance mutations on bacterial virulence. Peter Jorth, PhD, has diverse scientific training in microbiology, molecular biology, systems biology, bioinformatics, genetics, host-pathogen interactions, immunology and biochemistry.
