TRANSPLANT INFECTIOUS DISEASES FELLOW

Claire Gordon, MD

Dr. Gordon received her MD from the University of Melbourne Australia. She is completing a Masters in Biomedical Informatics at Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health. Dr. Gordon’s research focuses on viral infections in solid organ transplant recipients. She is engaged in several inter-disciplinary projects.

Her main research project investigates the tissue-specific T-cell memory control of CMV and tissue sites of CMV latency and reactivation in healthy organ donors and transplant recipients, under mentorship of Dr. Donna Farber, Columbia Center for Translational Immunology (CCTI). In a related project with Dr. Farber and Dr. Rafal Tokarz, Center for Infection and Immunity, Dr. Gordon is investigating tissue sites of persistent herpesvirus infections in healthy organ donors.

Under the co-mentorship of Dr. Ian Lipkin, Center for Infection and Immunity (CII), she will be pursuing pathogen discovery in undiagnosed infectious syndromes and post-transplant lymphoproliferative disorders in SOT recipients. Dr. Gordon is also part of a study with Dr. Farber investigating local respiratory immune responses of neonates and infant with severe viral pneumonia.

Labs:
Dr. Ian Lipkin at the Center for Infection and Immunity

Dr. Donna Farber at the Columbia Center for Translational Immunology
