Research

Dr. Crnich’s research has utilized data collected from a prospective cohort study to better understand the transmission dynamics of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and fluoroquinolone-resistant Escherichia coli in Wisconsin nursing homes, elucidate the factors associated with acquisition of these pathogens, and begin to explore the role that different antibiotic classes play in this process.
