Columbia University Transplant Infectious Diseases Program


The primary mission of the Columbia University Transplant ID Program is to provide expert care in the prevention, evaluation and management of infectious diseases in solid organ and bone marrow transplant recipients as well as patients with hematological malignancies. Additional services provided by the program include 1) educational support to CUMC residents, fellows and staff; 2) collaboration with the hematological malignancies, solid organ and bone marrow transplant programs in the creation and review of “best practice” protocols; and 3) patient oriented clinical research.

Inpatient/Outpatient Service:

The inpatient service provides inpatient consultations and assistance to all transplant and hematological malignancy patients. The service is overseen by Drs. Marcus Pereira and Benjamin Miko and staffed by Elizabeth Istorico NP. Infectious disease fellows, medicine residents as well as clinical pharmacists rotate through the service on a continuous basis. The service also provides the transplant and hematological malignancy groups with several weekly outpatient sessions for initial and follow up consultations. This includes pre-transplant infectious disease evaluations.
