Areas of Research Interest

Using molecular methods to improve the rapid diagnosis of infections with emphasis on viral and other unconventional agents, in both normal and immunocompromised patients. Also the application of high throughput nucleotide sequencing to pathogen discovery. Dr. Storch's main current research project is a study of viral causes of fever without focus in young children.
