Robert Betts, M.D. is a Professor of Medicine at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry. Clinical research is his major academic effort, evaluating new antibiotics active against resistant bacteria and new antifungal agents. His two major areas of interest are vaccines for disease prevention and appropriate use of antibiotics. His work is evaluating how inappropriate use has led to the increase in antibiotic resistance such that patients with infection need to be treated entirely differently than ten years ago in order to manage their infections appropriately.
