Welcome to PHRI

As today’s biomedical advances occur at a dizzying pace, the Public Health Research Institute pursues its research mission to help eliminate the infectious diseases spreading across the planet.

Founded in 1942 in New York City by legendary Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia, PHRI has been home to seminal discoveries in biomedical sciences. Hosted in the ICPH building in Newark, NJ, since 2002, PHRI became part of the New Jersey Medical School in 2006 and joined Rutgers University in 2013.

For almost 80 years, PHRI has fostered a culture of international talent, a collaborative environment, and the mentoring of young scientists. Today, PHRI remains committed to the pursuit of excellence in research and learning.

Dr. Marila Gennaro received an award from the New Jersey Health Foundation, which will help study the mechanisms underlying envelope stress responses in Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the causative agent of tuberculosis.  The aim of this study is to reveal the mechanistic links between metal homeostasis, envelope stress, and mycobacterial virulence, with the goal of developing small molecule inhibitors that block virulence-associated mycobacterial functions.

Dr. Chaoyang Xue received an award from the New Jersey Health Foundation, which will aid in studies to better understand the mechanism of lipid flippase-mediated antifungal drug resistance.  The ultimate aim is to identify novel drug targets and to expand the use of existing drugs against currently resistant fungal infections.

Dr. Karl Drlica is co-editor of a new book on antibiotic resistance.  Titled Antimicrobial Resistance in the 21st Century, the book provides a broad introduction to the subject by describing the biology of problematic pathogens and resistance, efforts to find new antibiotics, and issues associated with bringing new compounds to market.  The 24 chapters, composed by internationally recognized leaders in the field, provide an update for physicians, act as a starting point for graduate students interested in solving the resistance problem, and collectively serve as a text for a course on antimicrobial resistance.  For further details, visit www.springer.com.
