Dr. Ries’ clinical and investigative interests include pulmonary rehabilitation, evaluating health outcomes in chronic lung diseases, and pulmonary and excercise physiology.
Dr. Rodwell’s research is primarily focused on tuberculosis (TB) with an emphasis on the molecular epidemiology of drug resistance and development and implementation of rapid molecular diagnostics for TB and acute febrile syndromes. He is currently leading a large multinational study to develop and field test a novel, table-top platform for clinical diagnosis of XDR-TB (R01AI111435), and is Project Director of a CFAR study to demonstrate that quantifiable, phenotypic drug resistance to fluoroquinolone antibiotics can be reliably predicted by rapidly detectable mutations in Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb).…
