I am the community leader of the Infectious Disease forum and am a board certified and licensed microbiologist. I have worked in both clinical and research aspects of microbiology and molecular microbiology. I enjoy helping people and normally jog, play tennis, hike, s
[More]norkel, play violin and travel. And, I have been in great health until about 4 years ago. I got Tendonitis in both wrists from work and then injured my back. But walking helped a lot and finally joining a gym with a personal master trainer really helped. I am interested in microbiology, infectious disease, general health, immunology, hematology, as well as many other topics. I look forward to answering your questions and hearing your advice as well!
