Pediatric Infectious Diseases Research

Researchers in NYU Langone’s Division of Pediatric Infectious Diseases are leaders in the field, performing laboratory-based investigations, clinical studies of disease processes, epidemiological studies, and clinical trials of investigational therapies for childhood infections.

Research in the labs focuses on congenital and perinatal infections and vaccine development; the epidemiology of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and clinical trials of novel MRSA decolonization strategies; infections in immunocompromised children, including transplant recipients; and HIV outcomes.

Investigators work closely with other departments, institutes, and divisions, including the Department of Microbiology, the Institute for Computational Medicine, and the Division of Infectious Diseases and Immunology in the Department of Medicine. This collaborative and interdisciplinary approach helps us make advances in pediatric infectious disease.
