Special Interests

Research Interests

Dr. Strong’s research focuses on synergistic genomic, computational and molecular strategies to disease and disease pathogenesis. I am particularly interested in developing and applying computational methods to better generate, integrate and analyze genomic and proteomic information, with a focus on respiratory disease and disease pathogens, including Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Some of Dr. Strong’s current collaborative projects include complete genome sequencing, gene expression analysis, protein and gene network analysis, and structural informatics. It is Dr. Strong’s hope that these strategies will help elucidate the underlying mechanisms of disease and suggest new ways to combat, prevent and limit disease and drug resistance.
