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 the best dr. I have ever had, always caring - explaining options, risks & benefits. He is generous with his time. I have total confidence in him and would recommend him to anyone needing the care he offers.

If every physician were as kind, compassionate, personable, and intelligent as Dr Charles Daley, those of us with complicated medical conditions would feel far less stressed and far more cared for.

National Jewish Health PatientMay, 2021
Dr. Daley is a knowledgeable professional and I trust him 100%. He listens, and discusses in great detail any of my concerns. I feel very much at ease and I feel very lucky to have him on the team that takes care of me. Dr. Goldstein is also on the team, and he too is wonderful.
