Dr. Fey is a Professor in the Department of Pathology and Microbiology at the University of Nebraska Medical Center. His training and experience are broad including the pathogenesis, genetics, and biology of the staphylococci in addition to clinical microbiology and related themes including diagnostics, epidemiological methods and characterization of antibiotic resistance. He also serves as Medical Director of the Nebraska Medicine Clinical Microbiology Laboratory. This work has facilitated great insight into relevant questions related to infectious disease and bacterial pathogenesis including mechanisms of antibiotic resistance. Currently, the most significant theme in his research laboratory includes the investigation of amino acid catabolism in S. aureus and the importance of the use of amino acids and peptides as secondary carbon sources in an in vivo environment. Secondly, he is investigating the function and relevance of accumulation associated protein (Aap) in Staphylococcus epidermidis and its function in adherence to human skin.
