Dates

Start Date:

End Date:

Project Type

Summary

This proposed research aims to address an important substantive question about the frequency with which industrial livestock operation workers and their household member contacts carry animal versus human adaptive multidrug-resistant S. aureus (MDRSA) and whether there is a temporal relation of specific molecular characteristics – e.g., cell adhesion, immune evasion, and virulence genes – with reports of symptoms of infection versus subclinical colonization.
