Silvio Brugger, MD, PhD, University Hospital Zurich, University of Zurich, Zurich, Switzerland

Dr. Brugger is currently an ID fellow in the Department of Infectious Diseases and Hospital Hygiene at the University Hospital Z├╝rich, Switzerland. He trained in the Swiss national M.D.-Ph.D. program, receiving his M.D. in 2007 and Ph.D. summa cum laude in 2010 from the University of Bern, Switzerland. His thesis research focused on basic biological (capsule chemistry and growth behavior) and epidemiological aspects of Streptococcus pneumoniae colonization and disease as well as bacterial microbiota analysis of the upper respiratory tract. He then completed his clinical residency in the Department of General Internal Medicine at the University Hospital Bern, Switzerland. After rotations in Internal Medicine, Infectious Diseases, Emergency Medicine and Intensive Care Medicine, he became a Senior Physician in the Department of General Internal Medicine and received Swiss Board Certification in Internal Medicine in October 2014. He then moved to the U.S. for postdoctoral research with Dr. Katherine P. Lemon, M.D., Ph.D, The Forsyth Institute and Division of Infectious Diseases, Boston Children's Hospital, Harvard Medical School. In his postdoctoral training he investigated molecular mechanisms of interactions between benign commensal bacteria of the genus Corynebacterium and Dolosigranulum and two key human pathobionts, Staphylococcus aureus and Streptococcus pneumonia in the upper respiratory tract.
