The Dr. James J. Rahal Jr. Division of Infectious Diseases

Research on antibacterial and antiviral agents is conducted through the Infectious Disease Research Laboratory (antibiotic mechanisms and resistance) and the Special Care Clinic (anti-HIV therapeutic agents). The fully accredited Infectious Disease Fellowship Training Program at NewYork-Presbyterian/Queens was established in 1988 by James Rahal, M.D., Director, until his passing in 2011.  A renowned infectious disease specialist clinician, teacher and researcher, Dr. Rahal was a Professor of Medicine who directed the Infectious Disease Division at New York Hospital Queens here in Flushing.  His research covered a broad array of topics in the field of infectious disease, most notably in mechanisms of bacterial resistance to antibiotics, treatment of HIV infection, and the identification and treatment of the West Nile Virus.  Through the research laboratory, infectious disease fellows are prepared for clinical investigation of problems in pathogenesis, diagnosis, epidemiology and treatment of human infectious diseases.
