Research


Focus

Dr. Benedetti is interested in challenges related to analyzing TB data. She holds operating funds from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research to study statistical methods in molecular epidemiology with applications to tuberculosis research.  The overall objective of this project is to investigate the impact of TB-fingerprint change rates (assumed due to underlying spontaneous mutation) on conclusions drawn from epidemiologic studies of TB-transmission.
