"Precise diagnosis of prosthetic joint infections using next-generation sequencing"

Year: 2019

Institution: Hospital for Special Surgery

Principal Investigator: Dr. Laura Donlin

Research Category: Translational


Dr. Laura Donlin at the HSS Research Institute and Weill Cornell Medicine and collaborators are applying cutting-edge molecular technologies to improve the care of patients who endure infections around prosthetic joints. Specifically, they are using next-generation sequencing approaches to diagnose and track treatment responses using a blood-based assay that accurately detects the causal microorganism.
