Ralph Isberg

Ralph Isberg

PhD   | Director

Dr. Isberg has been an acknowledged in the field of bacterial pathogenesis for over 30 years, with particular emphasis on pneumonic and diarrheal diseases.  He has a major interest in identifying strategies for eliminating drug resistance in nosocomial pathogens, focusing on Acinetobacter baumannii.  Among his awards was election to the National Academy of Sciences in 2009.

John Leong


Dr. Leong is Edith Rieva and Hyman S. Trilling Professor and Chair of the Department of Molecular Biology and Microbiology at Tufts University School of Medicine. His research focuses on the interaction of pathogenic Escherichia coliBorrelia burgdorferi (the Lyme disease spirochete) and Streptococcus pneumoniae with host immune and epithelial cells in order to understand the infectious process and develop novel therapies to prevent or treat these infections.

David R. Snydman


Dr. Snydman has 35 years of experience in observational and interventional studies in translational research, including trials that resulted in FDA licensure of a biologic product. He has worked on epidemiologic aspects of antibiotic resistance for decades, focusing on hospital-acquired infections, anaerobes, C difficile, and MRSA. His current research is focused on the transmission of antibiotic resistance and C. difficile among nursing home patients and in health systems, as well as the impact of antimicrobial stewardship.
