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.

Patient Ratings

The Patient Rating score is an average of all responses to care provider related questions on our independent rating system, the Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey. This survey is about the patient care experience and does not address crucial characteristics like medical decision-making, prescribing the best therapy, and patient outcomes.

Responses are measured on a scale of 1 to 5, with 5 being the best score. Learn more about our patient satisfaction survey.


Comments are collected in our Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Surveys. Patients are de-identified to protect confidentiality and patient privacy. Learn more about our patient satisfaction survey.
