Biography

Dr. Stefan Riedel is an assistant professor of pathology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. His clinical expertise is in anti-infective chemotherapy and pathology. Dr. Riedel serves as the director of Clinical Pathology Laboratories at the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center.

He earned his M.D. and Ph.D. from Johann Wolfgang Goethe Universität, Frankfurt am Main, Germany. He performed residencies in anatomic and clinical pathology from Baylor University Medical Center and orthopaedic surgery from Kantonales Spital Alstatetten. Dr. Riedel also completed a fellowship in medical microbiology from the University of Iowa Hospital.

His research focuses on epidemiology of emerging bacterial resistance, mechanisms and laboratory detection of antimicrobial resistance, with a particular interest in gram-negative organisms.

Dr. Riedel is a member of College of American Pathologists, American Society for Microbiology and the Association for Clinical Pathology.

    Research Summary

    Dr. Riedel’s research focuses 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). His additional areas of interest focus 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. Dr. Riedel’s recent studies include the development and evaluation of novel diagnostic methods in clinical microbiology for the evaluation of sepsis.
