Our laboratory occupies an unusual niche in the Department of Medicine as a hybrid clinical and research lab. We comprise the Microbiology and Human Challenge Core Laboratories of the UNC Sexually Transmitted Diseases Cooperative Research Center (STD-CRC) providing support and assay development for numerous Infectious Disease research projects within the UNC-CH campus and with outside collaborators. In addition to the Core laboratory facilities, we maintain research programs on the molecular epidemiology of Trichomonas vaginalis infection and the pathogenesis of Neisseria gonorrhoeae.
