Pseudomonas 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). Deborah Hogan's research is focused on the characterization of novel or unrecognized virulence determinants in chronic infections caused by bacterial and fungal opportunistic pathogens and the understanding of microbial interactions in the context of the host.
