Dr. Greeneā€™s research interests include the development and evaluation of new diagnostic assays and reagents. Residents are encouraged to participate in these investigations, or to pursue independent projects.

The Clinical Virology Laboratory is a full-service laboratory capable of isolating and identifying most viral and chlamydial pathogens and performing serologic analysis for these organisms. Molecular-based assays are widely used to detect pathogens due to their speed and sensitivity. A variety of direct detection assays are also employed where required.

Residents rotate through the virology laboratory for one month. During this time they learn cell culture techniques, identification of viruses based on their specific cytopathic effect in cells, numerous serologic assays for measuring antibody titers, and molecular diagnostic techniques. This is accomplished by one-on-one training by the technologists and daily discussions with Dr.Greene.
