Biography

Dr. Rothman joined the faculty in 1996 as Assistant Chief of Service and Research Fellow. He was promoted in 2012 to Professor and to the new position of Vice Chair of Research for the Department of Emergency Medicine. He also serves as the Research Fellowship Director and Director of Residency Research for the Emergency Department.

His research focus is infectious diseases, including infective endocarditis, HIV testing and HIV-related illnesses, pneumonia, and novel diagnostic strategies for bacteremia. He has received numerous grants and awards including the Society for Academic Emergency Medicine’s prestigious Young Investigator Award, an NIH Career Development “K” award, and the Clinical Scientist Award from the Johns Hopkins University. Most recently, he began work on development of novel diagnostic tests for emerging and biothreat pathogens, as part of a team of investigators funded by an NIH Center Grant for Excellence.
