Kami Kim, MD, FIDSA, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Bronx, NY

I attended the Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons and completed a residency in Internal Medicine at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center. After residency I became an Infectious Diseases Fellow at University of California, San Francisco where I began a research career in parasitology. My experiences as a medical student, house officer and ID fellow were shaped by the then new AIDS pandemic. I completed a postdoctoral fellowship at Stanford University and took a faculty position at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, where I am currently a Professor of Medicine and of Microbiology & Immunology. My research focuses upon Toxoplasma and malaria pathogenesis and understanding the human response to infectious agents.
