Eric Gerd PamerHead, Director | New York, New York
Dr. Pamer is an infectious diseases physician specializing in immunology and cancer-related infections that can occur when chemotherapy or bone marrow transplantation compromises the body’s immune system. His research focuses on how the immune system combats infection and how the microorganisms that normally inhabit the body protect against infection. His laboratory is also investigating mechanisms that prevent invasive fungal infections and the role immune cells called T lymphocytes play in fighting bacterial infections. The work provides fundamental insights that will enable us to optimize the body’s immune defenses against the range of clinically important infections.
