Infectious Diseases Susceptibility Program

 

The Infectious Disease Susceptibility Program is a translational research program: it applies the findings of basic research directly to patient care. It focuses on the identification and characterization of genetic defects of immunity (Primary Immunodeficiency Disorders) that cause patients to be unusually susceptible to infections. The clinic receives referrals to evaluate patients for underlying immunodeficiencies, focusing primarily on patients with recurrent infections, infections with unusual organisms, or unusually severe infections.

We work within a 280-bed acute care hospital recognized for its excellence in care and teaching, which also serves as the base for the largest family medicine training centre among the McGill sites, and one of the largest birthing centres in Montreal. We provide ID consultation services (inpatient and ambulatory) to a diverse and multicultural population in the Cote des Neiges area of Montreal. The division contributes to the core academic mission of McGill through clinical teaching of medical students, family medicine residents and ID fellows.  In close collaboration with colleagues at the MUHC and JGH we are also engaged in quality and research projects specifically in the areas of antimicrobial stewardship and infection control, both in Canada and in developing countries (Ethiopia).
