Dr. Cooper’s research is One Health based and involves an interdisciplinary approach encompassing the various food industries, numerous researchers from different disciplines, and federal regulatory agencies to solving challenging global food safety issues. The Cooper laboratory’s research focuses more specifically on the genomics, pathogenesis and epidemiology of various bacterial foodborne pathogens. Dr. Cooper earned his doctorate degree at the University of Arizona (UA), post-doctorate researcher at UA, post-doctorate researcher at the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Agricultural Research Service, and an assistant professor at California State University, Northridge for 4 years, prior to returning to UA as an assistant professor in 2017.

Our current research program use an integrative approach at the whole animal, isolated organ, cellular and molecular levels to investigate developmental adaptations in pancreatic β-cells and insulin sensitivity that result from early life risk factors, such as intrauterine growth restriction, and increase risk of glucose intolerance and Diabetes in later life.

Renquist Lab Research aims to address the causes and consequent diseases of obesity. To this end we have research focused on 1) type 2 diabetes and obesity associated hypertension, 2) development of effective, ligand-directed, chemotherapeutic for cancer, and 3) central nervous system control of visceral blood flow and food intake.

Our research efforts focus on bacteria that cause serious healthcare-associated infections, and those associated with antibiotic use. This infections disproportiOur federally-funded research focuses on infection prevention. Specifically, we study diseases such as Clostridium difficile Infection that affect populations worldwide ("One-Health" issue). Our current efforts are aimed at translating bench-research findings to the bedside. We have recently been awarded two patents for a novel biologic agent invention aimed at preventing bacterial infections in humans as well as food animals.onately affect the elderly, and those with compromised immune systems. One overarching goal of our studies is to develop safe, cost-effective, non-antibiotic interventions to prevent and treat bacterial diarrheas.

Ninety children die every hour due to diarrhea. My laboratory uses the latest technology to understand how bacteria cause diarrhea in children. In addition to providing clues for new ways to prevent disease, our research helps us understand how the body maintains good health.
