Clinical Interests

Dr. Storch's research program is devoted to using molecular methods to improve the rapid diagnosis of infections. The infectious agents of choice are those for which existing methods are inadequate, either because the agent cannot be cultivated or because current diagnostic methods are too slow or insufficiently sensitive. The emphasis is on viral and other unconventional agents, in both normal and immunocompromised hosts. Dr. Storch is also interested in pathogen discovery and applications of high-throughput nucleotide sequencing to that process. Dr. Storch's main current research project is a study of viral causes of fever without focus in young children. He also continues to work on developing and evaluating new molecular diagnostic tests.
