We see patients for the diagnosis and management of acute and chronic infectious diseases. Our division works with Home Care Services to manage patients on home antibiotic therapy. Our division members have particular expertise in respiratory infections, ear infections, prolonged fevers, periodic fever syndromes, Kawasaki disease, and disease acquired from international travel.

Research

Our division is involved in the clinical investigation of infectious diseases and in basic science research in bacterial and viral immunology.

Additionally, we work closely with the Bacteriology, Virology and Molecular Diagnostics Laboratories on the development and application of new diagnostic tests. Current projects focus on immune responses to HIV, Clostridium difficile, staphylococcal infections, extended spectrum beta-lactamase producing gram-negative organisms and immune responses during Kawasaki disease.
