Biography

Dr. Olusegun Soge is a microbiologist with expertise in molecular diagnostics of infectious diseases, molecular epidemiology, surveillance of antimicrobial resistance, and genetic characterization of antimicrobial resistance of sexually transmitted pathogens and other clinically important pathogenic bacteria. He collaborates with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the State Department of Health-STD/HIV Programs in Washington, Oregon, Hawaii, California, Texas, and their Public Health Laboratories, to monitor trends in gonococcal antimicrobial resistance and provide data to guide evidence‐based selection of effective treatment regimens for gonorrhea. Dr. Soge serves as a laboratory consultant and collaborator on the development of new diagnostic tests for STIs; and works with pharmaceutical companies on the evaluation of new antimicrobial compounds as promising treatment options for gonorrhea.
