Ramon Lorenzo Redondo

Assistant Professor of Medicine (Infectious Diseases)

My work focuses on viral evolution and the interaction between viruses and the host during infection. My main interests are RNA viruses, specially HIV-1, evolutionary biology, and genomics. The ultimate goal of my research is to understand the virus-host system and its evolutionary properties in order to develop the best treatments and prevention strategies for human viral infections.

John P Flaherty

Professor of Medicine (Infectious Diseases) and Medical Education

HIV infection, Orthopedic-related Infections, Travel-related infections

Eun-Young Kim

Research Professor of Medicine (Infectious Diseases)

My research focuses on molecular evolutionary mechanisms of HIV/SIV/influenza in host defense, antiretroviral drug resistance and genetic variation in HIV, HIV susceptibility to HIV infection and disease progression, and how host genetics and immunity affects HIV/influenza infection and dynamics. Research includes next generation sequencing of HIV and host genes and transcriptome to pursue a detailed genetic interrogation of host and virus interactions and host genes that regulate HIV or influenza infection.

Michael P Angarone

Associate Professor of Medicine (Infectious Diseases) and Medical Education

My primary clinical interest is in the care of individuals infected with HIV and the complications of HIV infection, including oppurtunistic infections, cancers and metabolic disease. I also specialize in the care of infections seen in recipients of solid organ and stem cell transplants and the evaluation of persons prior to transplantation. Other specific interests that I have are sexually transmitted infections and fungal infections.

Brian Mustanski

Professor of Medical Social Sciences, Medicine (Infectious Diseases), Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences and Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences

Director of the Institute for Sexual and Gender Minority Health and Wellbeing, Co-Director of the NIH Third Coast Center for AIDS Research (CFAR), and Co-Director of the NIDA Center for Prevention Implementation Methodology. His research focuses on the health and development of LGBTQ youth and the application of new media and technology to sexual health promotion and HIV prevention. He has been a Principal Investigator of over $40 million in federal and foundation grants and has published over 215 journal articles in the areas of HIV/AIDS, mental health, and substance use. In 2017, NBC News se...

Egon A Ozer

Assistant Professor of Medicine (Infectious Diseases)

My research is focused on uncovering mechanisms of bacterial pathogenesis in Pseudomonas aeruginosa infection and other clinically relevant bacterial diseases. We are using comparative bacterial genomics to identify new genes and other factors that contribute to worse outcomes in patients infected with these bacteria.

Sarah H Sutton

Associate Professor of Medicine (Infectious Diseases)

As the medical director of the Antimicrobial Stewardship Program, I join forces with Infectious Disease pharmacists and the other hospital epidemiologists here at NMH. Our mission is to provide education, policy, and research that helps prescribers use antibiotics wisely. As an infectious disease physician, I care for a wide range of patients, particularly women with HIV. With maternal fetal medicine specialists and the NMH ID Clinic staff, I care for pregnant women with HIV infection. Our shared goals are to reduce maternal to child HIV transmission and to empower HIV-infected women to take e...
