AMR Spring Seminar Series: Dr. Ferric Fang

“Pathogenesis of enteric fever”

Salmonella Typhi and Paratyphi cause a prolonged illness known as enteric fever, whereas other Salmonella serovars cause gastroenteritis. Emergent multidrug resistance has increased the challenge posed by Salmonella infections, particularly in Asia and Africa. This presentation will describe new insights into pathogenic mechanisms of S. Typhi and S. Paratyphi A that distinguish them from nontyphoidal Salmonella serovars.

He is an infectious diseases specialist and molecular microbiologist with over thirty years’ experience as a clinician, educator and researcher studying bacterial genetics and pathogenesis.
