Research Interests

The Charles T. Campbell Ophthalmic Microbiology Laboratory is unique because of its two separate yet integrated components. The laboratory consists of a fully certified clinical diagnostic ophthalmic microbiology laboratory and a research laboratory that focuses on infectious diseases (adenovirus, HSV-1, bacteria) of the anterior segment of the eye and their treatment. The clinical laboratory has developed its own website to serve as a resource to all interested in ocular microbiology. The website also serves as the homepage for the Ocular Immunology and Microbiology Group (OMIG).
