Special Interests

Research Interests

My research has focused on clinical and epidemiological studies of tuberculosis and nontuberculous mycobacterial infections. In particular, I am interested in the molecular epidemiology of these infections and how we can better elucidate issues relevant to the transmission and pathogenesis of these important diseases. I am also interested in studying new diagnostic tests and new drugs and treatment regimens. In addition to my research I am very committed to medical education and training individuals to do clinical and epidemiologic research.

Dr. Daley is excellent and I have sot him out because of the difficulty of my lung problems and his expertise.

National Jewish Health PatientOctober, 2020
I rented an RV to be able to travel from [home] to Denver to see Dr Daley. He is the only pulmonologist I trust with my [condition]. He is kind, never condescending, listens patiently and explains thoroughly. He does not insist on the "one size fits all" treatment, but rather looks at the whole in making treatment recommendations.
