Welcome to the Weiss Lab!

About Us:

Our work in the Diane N. Weiss Center for Orthopaedic Trauma Research focuses on providing translational technologies aimed at preventing, treating, and minimizing the problems of infection related to orthopaedic trauma. Our approach emphasizes translational outcomes based on immediate clinical needs. Our general aim is focused on investigating the permitting factors relating to bacterial adherence and biofilm formation on clinically relevant surfaces, as well as means to more efficiently diagnose, treat, and prevent them.
