Stefan Riedel, M.D., Ph.D.
Primary Appointment in Pathology
Director, Clinical Pathology Laboratories, Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center
My research interests are focused on the epidemiology of emerging bacterial resistance, mechanisms and laboratory detection of antimicrobial resistance, with a particular interest in gram-negative organisms (e.g. Acinetobacter baumanii and Pseudomonas aeruginosa). Additional areas of my research are focusing on the early detection of blood stream infections, the evaluation of bacteremia/sepsis and the clinical impact of laboratory testing with regard to a cost-effective and clinically relevant management of the laboratory. Recent studies include the development and evaluation of novel diagnostic methods in clinical microbiology for the evaluation of sepsis.
