Houpt Lab Home

Welcome to the Houpt Laboratory Group

Our laboratory is involved in several projects focused on molecular diagnostic tools for infectious diseases. Most work involves developing panels of PCR-based diagnostic tests to detect a full range of enteropathogens, and we utilize these tests in collaborative studies, such as the Mal-ED and GEMS studies throughout Africa, Asia, and South America, to better document the cause of diarrhea and malnutrition. We also have a program on tuberculosis, both on developing rapid diagnostics that can identify which drugs to use for multidrug-resistant TB, as well as identifying markers for poor therapeutic response.
