One of the MD's is an infectious disease Pediatrician Attending Physician who spends about 50% of her time seeing patients and 50% in the lab. She studies Mycobacterium tuburculosis (and its Phospholipases) while she is in the lab which I guess makes sense since she treats several MDR TB cases in the hospital. The other is a current Internal Medicine Resident who I believe wants to do a fellowship in infectious diseases. She studies Pseudomonas aeruginosa (and its phospholipases) effects on epithelial cells of the lung (which again makes sense since she treats a lot of CF patients who are infected with Pseudomonas).
