Research: Deborah Hogan's research is focused on the characterization of novel virulence determinants in bacterial and fungal opportunistic pathogens. COBRE funded studies focus on a novel virulence factor regulator in the bacterium Pseudomonas aeruginosa. P. aeruginosa is an important pathogen of the lung and is associated with ventilator-associated pneumonia, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and chronic infections associated with cystic fibrosis (CF).
