Dr. Andes' research programs are multidisciplinary and strive to identify strategies to combat antimicrobial (especially antifungal) drug resistance. His study tactics span from the bench to the clinic, including identifying new resistance mechanisms, defining new antimicrobial drug targets, delineating the optimal dosing strategies for treatment of drug resistant infections, and clinical trial study of epidemiology of drug resistance epidemiology. Dr. Andes' research efforts have been continuously funded by the NIH since 2001. He has published his research in more than 400 papers, which have been cited more than 51,000 times by other scientists. His publications provide much of the scientific underpinning for treatment of drug-resistant infections. The results of these studies have been translated into management guidelines and his scientific approaches are being utilized to identify and develop the next generation of antimicrobial drugs.
