Claire Gordon, MBBS (Hons.), BMedSc, is the inaugural Hutchins Family Fellow in Infectious Diseases at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center. Dr. Gordon’s work on the infectious complications seen in transplant patients may prove applicable to patients with persistent viral-like symptoms and immune dysfunction, including those with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

Dr. Gordon has published research into the H1N1 influenza outbreak, antibiotic therapy for M. ulcerans, and population screening for cystic fibrosis, and she has written a book chapter on the antibiotic azithromycin. She has presented at the 2009 Interscience Conference on Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy and the 2010 World Health Organization Annual Buruli Ulcer meeting, and chaired a session on Novel Influenza A at the 2010 European Congress of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases.

Dr. Gordon received a Bachelor of Medical Science and a Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery from Melbourne University, and completed basic physician training and advanced training in infectious diseases from the Royal Australasian College of Physicians, Austin Health and Alfred Hospital — all in Melbourne, Australia. She is the recipient of numerous awards and scholarships; most recently, she was honored with the 2011 Royal Australasian College of Physicians Advanced Trainee Research Award, the 2010 Australasian Society of Infectious Diseases Advanced Trainees Research Award and the 2009 ICAAC Fellows Grant Program Award.
