Lizzie Johnson Harrell
Research Professor Emeritus of Molecular Genetics and Microbiology

I am a clinical microbiologist and our laboratory is responsible for detecting, isolating, identifying, and performing antimicrobial susceptibility tests on bacteria that cause infections in patients seen at Duke University Medical Center. My research interests include investigating emerging antibiotic-resistant bacteria and the use of molecular techniques for diagnosing infectious diseases. All of these activities involve collaboration with the Infectious Diseases service, the Infection Control group, the Medical Microbiology Fellows, and the Clinical Microbiology faculty as well as the medical technologists who staff the Clinical Microbiology Laboratory.

We have a Medical Microbiology Fellowship training program for physicians.
