Center for Anti-Infectives & Biotechnology (C.R.A.B.)
The Center for Research in Anti-Infectives and Biotechnology is an association of researchers within the Department of Medical Microbiology and Immunology, Creighton University School of Medicine. The research focus of the Center is on many aspects of antimicrobial chemotherapy ranging from drug discovery to studying the molecular mechanisms of antibacterial resistance among bacteria, solving problems of detecting antibacterial resistance in the clinical laboratory, and evaluating new drugs and novel drug combinations to effectively treat resistant bacteria.

The members of Center include specialists in clinical microbiology, infectious diseases, molecular biology, and pharmacodynamcs. In addition to research endeavors, members of CRAB are active in the teaching of many courses within the schools of medicine, dentistry, and pharmacy/allied health. Courses taught include medical microbiology and immunology, antimicrobial agents and chemotherapy, clinical aspects of molecular biology. The Center associates also teach a summer “minicourse” in antimicrobial agents and chemotherapy to pharmaceutical and industry professionals.
