Infectious disease specialist
Dr. Brian Schwartz specializes in treating infectious diseases, particularly infections that develop in patients who have suppressed immune systems, such as solid organ and hematopoietic stem cell transplant recipients. His research focuses on Staphylococcus aureus infection particularly the interaction between colonization and recurrent infection as well as antibiotic resistance mechanisms. Other interests include latent tuberculosis infection and Chagas disease in patients with suppressed immune systems as well as tropical medicine.
Schwartz earned his undergraduate degree at the University of Michigan in biological anthropology and his medical degree from Rush Medical College before completing an internal medicine residency at Massachusetts General Hospital. He also held an infectious diseases fellowship at UCSF, where he is now an assistant professor of clinical medicine and director of the infectious diseases clinics.
