We conduct research with trainees in a variety of areas, usually thematically aligned with their interests.  Projects can range in size and scope and can be synthesis based (e.g., narrative or systematic review), observational (working with data sources including pre-existing databases) and/or bench microbiology projects.  We also conduct randomized controlled trials and have a funded clinical trials fellowship for trainees who already have an independent practice licence.

Some examples of trainee publications from our lab include:

Evaluations of diagnostic tests:

Evaluations of various treatments:

Conduct of controlled trials and prospective observational cohorts:

Roles and Responsibilities
Trainees who conduct research with our group have the option of joining an existing project as a team member (and learning the ropes/checking the fit with the team) or in taking on a project of their own. Those who undertake a project of their own are generally motivated self-starters who can work independently between lab meetings with email correspondence. Those who are being funded to conduct the research (either directly via their salary or via a bursary/scholarship) are further expected to meet the requirements of the funder.
