  • Biography

    BIOGRAPHY:

    Dr. Jayasimha Rao has completed his Ph.D. in Microbiology, Faculty of Medicine from Osmania University. Currently, Dr. Rao is working as Associate Professor at the Internal Medicine/Section of Infectious Diseases/Carilion Medical Center/Jefferson College of Health Science, and an Assistant Professor at the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine. Major contribution of his research is focused on gaining insights into the epidemiological tracking of carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE) and multidrug-resistant organisms (MRDOs), specifically Acinetobacter baumanii by whole genome sequencing as a tool and further expanding knowledge in bacterial pathogenesis by using proteomics and genomics for identifying differentially expressed genes and proteins in clinical isolates of Pseudomonas aeruginosa, these organisms frequently encounter in the hospital settings. His research experience and technical expertise with modern molecular methods such as PCR, RNA-seq and cloning methods have been used in his laboratory.
