Daniel Amsterdam PhD

Department of Microbiology and Immunology

 
Professional Summary:

-Research is focused on the clinical aspects of microbiology. Molecular and immunologic methods are used to detect and characterize emerging and reemerging microbial agents of infection, particularly Chlamydia and Mycobacterium tuberculosis. The role of cytomegalovirus infection in transplantation has been extensively studied. Additional interests include the changing patterns of resistance of gram-negative and gram-positive microorganisms to antimicrobial agents. Methods for detecting and monitoring the susceptibility (resistance) of these organisms in conventional and automated systems have been developed and are the basis for ongoing studies.

The Erie County Medical Center Healthcare Network‘s Department of Laboratory Medicine is a comprehensive, full-range service and reference laboratory dedicated to provide state-of-the-art quality and timely testing results to area physicians and health care providers.

Licensed and accredited by several agencies and organizations including the New York State Department of Health and the Joint Commission on Hospital Accreditation, the Department of Laboratory Medicine used quality assurance, quality management and continuous quality improvement to strengthen service delivery and ensure superlative laboratory testing. Accuracy, timeliness, and convenience are the major components of these programs. The professional staff of the Department of Laboratory Medicine has been awarded Certificates of Qualification from the New York State Department of Health. Many are board certified in their medical specialty and have State University of New York at Buffalo School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences academic appointments in the departments of medicine, microbiology, biochemistry, pathology and clinical laboratory sciences.
