Matthew Kelly
Assistant Professor of Pediatrics

Current Research Interests

As a pediatrician with specialty training in infectious diseases and global health, my career goal is to develop strategies that use targeted manipulation of the microbiome for the prevention and treatment of infections in children. My current research focuses on elucidating the complex relationships that exist between sociodemographic factors, the upper respiratory microbiome, and colonization by pneumonia pathogens among infants in Botswana. Ultimately, we aim to develop microbiome therapeutics that effectively prevent pneumonia and other respiratory infections in children.
