Many graduates of the program are chairs or directorsof academic programs.Faculty in the Division also have been actively engaged in clinically applied researchfor more than 40 years. Results of their clinical- and laboratory-based research arepresented at many forums nationally and internationally. The faculty is recognizedworldwide as leaders in many areas of infectious diseases and as principal investigatorsof domestic and international collaborative research projects. The research efforts ofthe Division have been supported by a wide variety of sources including the National Institute of Allergy and InfectiousDisease (NIAID), the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), the Health Resources andServices Administration (HRSA) and several foundations, as well as through grants and contracts from the pharmaceuticalindustry.As a consultative service, faculty and fellows in Pediatric Infectious Disease interact with all divisions in the departmentand assist in the management of children with a variety of underlying medical problems.In 2011, the Division of Infectious Diseases created a separate consultation service specifically designed to attend to theneeds of immunocompromised children. This group is composed of children receiving chemotherapy for malignanciesor children who are transplant recipients (stem cell, bone marrow, solid organ) and therefore require immunosuppressivetherapy. The goal of this new consultation service is to improve the care of the ever expanding cohort of children whosegreatest challenge is the threat of infection. This consultation service will also develop and expand educational and researchopportunities.FacultyThe Division of Pediatric Infectious Disease has seven faculty members and one adjunct member.Theresa Barton, M.D.Assistant ProfessorCarla Garcia, M.D.Assistant ProfessorMichelle Gill, M.D., Ph.D.Assistant Professor, Pediatrics andInternal MedicineJeffrey Kahn, M.D., Ph.D.Professor, Pediatrics andMicrobiology, Division DirectorRuth Levitz, Ph.D.InstructorGeorge McCracken, Jr., M.D.ProfessorJeffrey McKinney, M.D., Ph.D.Associate ProfessorJohn Nelson, M.D.Professor EmeritusJane Siegel, M.D.ProfessorIn 2011, three faculty were named Best Pediatric Specialists in Dallas by D Magazine and two were named Top USDoctors by U.S. News.
