Dr. Suchdev will provide an overview of the intersection between nutrition and infection in both clinical and public health settings.  He will discuss case examples from his collaborative and interdisciplinary research work in improving nutrition assessment, evaluating the risk-benefit of iron interventions, and addressing the role of malnutrition and child mortality. He will share some lessons learned for trainees interested in a career in nutrition and global health.

Dr. Suchdev is the founding Director of the Emory School of Medicine Global Health & Equity Office, Associate Director of the Emory Global Health Institute, and Professor of Pediatrics and Global Health. He completed his residency in Pediatrics at the UW and the CDC Epidemic Intelligence Service fellowship before joining Emory faculty in 2007. His research focuses on micronutrient malnutrition, in particular the safety and effectiveness of home fortification programs, as well as the effects of infection/inflammation on nutrition biomarkers. He has written nearly 100 papers on this topic, which have contributed to the formulation of global nutrition policy.
