Dr. Claeys joined the faculty at the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy following an Infectious Disease Health Outcomes Fellowship at Wayne State University Eugene Applebaum College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences. Since starting as faculty she has completed a PhD in Epidemiology at the University of Maryland School of Medicine, with a focus on diagnostic stewardship to decrease diagnostic error in healthcare-associated infections, particularly urinary tract infections (UTIs). Since this time she has become a Fellow of the Center for Innovation in Diagnosis at the University of Maryland School of Medicine and a Scholar in Diagnostic Excellence (2022/2023 class) through the National Academy of Medicine (NAM). Her research interests include the intersection of antimicrobial and diagnostic stewardship, particularly focusing on principles of implementation science to improve antimicrobial use and diagnostic error. She also explores translation research involving rapid diagnostic testing (RDTs) for bacterial infections and how to best implement these tools in clinical practice. She also serves as the Co-Chair for the University of Maryland Medical System (UMMS) Sepsis Program Rapid Diagnostic Subcommittee.
