Jeffrey H. Sullivan, MD, MHS
Clinical Assistant Professor, Epidemiology
I am a physician scientist with formal training in epidemiology and experience in longitudinal data analysis on large infectious disease and cardiovascular cohort databases. I have participated in community-based and human translational studies involving multi-disciplinary research teams. Currently, I am performing studies on existing clinical data that assess the changes in initial treatment and outcome of resistant infections in community-dwelling individuals. With the assistance of the Group Health Research Institute, I anticipate performing future studies on immunological risk factors for recurrent or persistent infections with MRSA. Future collaborative studies will involve evaluation of interventions to influence recognition and treatment of common infections by primary care physicians.
