Research: Dr. Hampton’s research in DartCF involves three main areas: 1) Investigation of host and pathogen gene expression profiles in model systems of the Cystic Fibrosis airway 2) analysis of the prevalence and abundance of microbial pathogens in CF patients, and 3) exploration of the relationship between patient endpoints such as inflammatory status that might be explained by changes in microbial diversity or pathogenic phenotype. An enthusiastic collaborator, his work also includes environmental genomics, arsenic toxicology and cancer biology.
Expertise: Dr. Hampton uses a wide array of statistical and bioinformatic techniques such as linear models, non-parametric methods, dimensional reduction, clustering, resampling, simulation, and pathway analysis.
