Year 2 - John McAteer, D.O., M.P.H.

Medical School: Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences College of Osteopathic Medicine
Residency: Emory University School of Medicine
Research Interests: Infections in the immunocompromised host, microbial heteroresistance, neglected tropical diseases and the impact of climate change on microbial pathogenesis
Biography: Dr. McAteer is originally from the Boston area, but has traveled all around the country for medical training—first to Kansas City for medical school, then to Atlanta for residency. He comes to Baltimore with his wife, who is entering a doctoral program at Johns Hopkins University, and their dog Tessie. As the son of a microbiologist, he was born with a love for infectious diseases and is fascinated by the intersection of infectious diseases and human history. Dr. McAteer loves all of ID, but has a particular research interest in infections in the immunocompromised host, microbial heteroresistance, neglected tropical diseases and the impact of climate change on microbial pathogenesis. Prior to medical school, he pursued an MPH at Boston University, specializing in epidemiology and maternal/child health, which sparked an interest in clinical research and translational science. When not doing something related to infectious diseases, you can find him walking the dog, snowboarding, playing escape rooms or watching detective shows. “I am excited to explore all of the incredible clinical and research opportunities here at Hopkins!"
