Claudia Crowell, MD
Acting Instructor, Infectious Disease

Dr. Crowell's research focuses on the prevention, treatment efficacy and clinical outcomes of pediatric HIV.

Janet A. Englund, MD
Professor of Pediatrics, Infectious Disease

Matthew Kronman, MD, MSCE
Assistant Professor, Infectious Disease

Dr. Kronman's primary research area of interest is antimicrobial stewardship, using the tools of pharmacoepidemiology to understand current patterns of antimicrobial use, identify the unintended consequences of antimicrobial overuse, and ultimately find ways to improve the overall quality of antimicrobial prescribing for various conditions.

Ann Melvin, MD, MPH  
Associate Professor of Pediatrics, Infectious Disease

Dr. Melvin's research interests are in the antiretroviral management of HIV disease in children, and the prevention and management of complications of HIV treatment.

Danielle Zerr, MD, MPH
Professor of Pediatrics, Infectious Diseases

Dr. Zerr's research focuses defining the epidemiology of viral pathogens in healthy children and immunocompromised hosts, and describing the epidemiology and defining prevention strategies for healthcare-associated infections.
