Meet the Principal Investigator

David Greenberg, M.D.

Dr. Greenberg completed his medical degree and residency at the Baylor College of Medicine, followed by fellowship training in infectious disease at the National Institutes of Health. His research interests stem from his time at the NIH, where he developed a passion for host-pathogen interactions, especially in the context of rare genetic diseases and immunocompromised hosts. While an ID fellow, Dr. Greenberg was part of the team that took care of chronic granulomatous disease (CGD) patient who had the first documented human infection with Granulibacter bethesdensis; in a series of papers, they fulfilled Koch’s postulates for proving that the newly discovered G. bethesdensis was pathogenic.
