Dr. Lynch's day-to-day focus is on the prevention of healthcare associated infections (HAI), rational use of antimicrobials and employee health at Harborview Medical Center. In addition, he serves as the medical director of the HMC Infectious Diseases Clinic where he sees patients with a broad spectrum of infectious diseases.

Current and recent research projects are focused on the epidemiology of HAI, especially ventilator-associated pneumonia and sepsis, including appropriate diagnosis, testing and treatment pathways, risk factors for Clostridium difficile infection, the use of antimicrobials and healthcare worker influenza vaccination, and preventable injury of healthcare workers.
