Infectious Diseases Newsletter

January 2024

Welcome from Erol Fikrig, MD

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

The Section of Infectious Diseases greeted 2024 with many innovative projects, initiatives, and developments underway. In this issue, we highlight vaccine development for leptospirosis and Lyme disease, brain fog in long COVID patients, a new therapy for drug-resistant babesiosis, care for patients with cancer and HIV, toothbrushing as a critical means of infection prevention, and more.

Please join me in congratulating three of our fellows who have recently won awards (read more below)—and in welcoming our 2024 fellows, who will soon join us!

As always, please feel free to contact me at the email below if you have news to share. I hope you enjoy reading about some of the exciting work happening in our section.
