Dr. Steven Pergam | CureTalks

Dr. Steven Pergam specializes in the prevention and treatment of infectious diseases, particularly among patients whose immune systems are compromised due to cancer, chemotherapy or transplantation. He develops methods to protect against potentially dangerous complications such as fungal infections and hospital-acquired infections caused by microbes that are resistant to antibiotics. Dr. Pergam’s interests include understanding how the human microbiome — the diverse communities of microscopic organisms that inhabit the body — may affect complications among bone marrow transplant recipients. He also tracks the unique transmission patterns of respiratory viruses among patients with weakened immune systems. He is exploring how patient care data can be used to improve vaccination rates, enhance infection-prevention strategies and discover new tools for predicting outbreaks of viral respiratory infections.
