Areas of interest include mycobacterial infections, hyper IgE syndrome and chronic granulomatous disease.
The Mider lecture, established in 1968, honors the first director of NIH laboratories and clinics. The lecture is presented by an NIH intramural scientist in recognition of outstanding contributions to biomedical research.
