Yoram was a postdoctoral fellow intheDivision of Infectious Diseases at the Columbia University Medical Center. He completed his doctoral training at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in 2001. His prior research in the Department of Biochemistry under Dr. Steven C. Almo was focused on the use of X-ray crystallography and biochemical techniques to map the functional surfaces of signal transduction proteins.
He trained in the Department of Internal Medicine at the NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital /CornellUniversity Medical Center before arriving here to begin his fellowship in Infectious Diseases. His interests are in the use of structural biology and biochemical techniques to explore the basis of bacterial pathogenesis, and to identify targets for rational design of antimicrobial therapeutics.
While at the lab he worked on a collaborative project with Dr. Shapiro and Dr. Alice Prince involving the molecular basis of airway inflammation in pneumonia caused by Staphylococcus aureus. Yoram now works as an internist at Roger Williams Hospital in Providence, RI.
