Dr. Shaw's clinical research interests focus on epidemiology and severity of S. aureus infection among healthy children. Current research focuses on establishing the role of S. aureus virulence factors among seriously ill children and the importance of S. aureus colonization among children. She has also undertaken a series of ecological studies aimed at elucidating the causes of vaccine refusal among various populations and to describe epidemiology of vaccine hesitancy in the US.
